Space shuttle Atlantis rolls along the crawlerway toward Launch pad 39A, in the background,
after leaving the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. A water truck sprays the crawlerway to
minimize dust. The shuttle stack, with solid rocket boosters and external fuel tank attached to Atlantis, rest on the mobile
launcher platform. Movement is provided by the crawler-transporter underneath. First motion occurred at 9:19 a.m. EDT.
The September 2nd rollout date was postponed due to Tropical Storm Hanna’s shift to a northern track. Atlantis is scheduled to
launch on the STS-125 mission to service NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. Launch is targeted for October 8th.
