Atlantis moves to launch pad
Posted: Wed, Sep 11, 2002, 2:26 PM ET (1826 GMT)
STS-112 rollout (NASA/KSC) The space shuttle Atlantis was rolled out to its launch pad Tuesday in preparation for the first shuttle flight in four months. The shuttle moved from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Pad 39B during a seven-hour rollout early Tuesday morning. The rollout was the first use of one of the massive crawler transporters since cracked bearings were discovered in the vehicles this summer; the bearings were replaced in the transporter used for Tuesday's rollout. Atlantis is scheduled to launch on mission STS-112 on October 2, during a launch window between 2 and 6 pm EDT (1800 to 2200 GMT); the exact launch time will not be announced until one day before launch because of security concerns. The primary purpose of the mission is to install the S1 truss segment to the International Space Station.
