Final Shuttle To Make The Trip Between The Facilities
We're going to be hearing about a lot of "lasts" from the
Kennedy Space Center over the next couple of months. One of those
is set for Tuesday, May 17th. At that time, space shuttle Atlantis'
is scheduled to be moved from its processing hangar to the Vehicle
Assembly Building. The first motion of Atlantis for rollover is
scheduled for 0800 EDT.
Inside the Vehicle Assembly Building, Atlantis will be attached
to its external fuel tank and twin solid rocket boosters, which
already are on a mobile launcher platform. The date and start time
for the move is subject to change depending on shuttle Endeavour's
scheduled launch on Monday, May 16.
The STS-135 mission will carry the Raffaello multi-purpose
logistics module with supplies, logistics and spare parts to the
International Space Station to help sustain station operations
after the shuttles are retired later this year.
