STS-135 Atlantis Rolls To Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB)


Shuttle Atlantis was moved May. 17 from Orbiter Processing Facility-1 to the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida for the final space shuttle mission, STS-135. The move from Atlantis’ hangar is referred to as a “rollover.” Following rollover, technicians will attach the lifting sling to Atlantis for rotation and hoisting. The shuttle then is bolted to its external tank and twin solid rocket boosters for its rollout to Launch Pad 39A in approximately two weeks.
