Space shuttle Atlantis passes through the gate and approaches the top of Launch Pad 39A
after rolling from the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. 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 2 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.
