Final Shuttle Rollout on This Week @NASA


The final rollout of the Space Shuttle Program has brought Atlantis from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center for the liftoff of STS-135 targeted for July 8. Mated to its external tank and solid rocket boosters, the orbiter traveled the 3.4-miles atop a crawler-transporter at a top speed of less than a mile an hour. Also, farewell to Spirit; cave research; lunabotics, and aviation history revisited.
