The rocket remained on track to blast off on a crucial test flight on Monday despite a series of lightning strikes at the launch pad, accordingto U.S. media report.
Technicians recorded five strikes on the launch pad lightning towers, with everything "working as it should," Jeff Spaulding, NASA's Artemis 1 senior test director, told reporters.
The 322-foot (98-meter) Space Launch System rocket is the most powerful ever built by NASA.
