NASA is slowly inching forward with its mission for deep space exploration.
NASA's mobile launcher slowly crawled across the Kennedy Space Center and headed for the launch pad Thursday morning.

The launcher is getting into place for the launch of the first Artemis mission, which was originally scheduled for Thursday.
The launch was delayed until July 9 due to a battery issue.
The Artemis 1 rocket will launch an unmanned Orion spacecraft into orbit for a journey around the moon.
"This is the next big step ... ready to support SLA and Orion," said Cliff Lanham, NASA mobile launcher project manager.
