STS-122: rollout to pad (NASA/KSC) NASA rolled out the space shuttle Atlantis to its launch pad Saturday in preparation for its launch next month on a key space station assembly mission. Atlantis, attached to its external tank and solid rocket boosters, took a little over six hours to go from the Vehicle Assembly Building to pad 39A, arriving there at 11 am EST (1600 GMT) Saturday. Atlantis is scheduled to launch on December 6 on mission STS-122, delivering the European-built Columbus module to the ISS and bringing an ESA astronaut to the station for an extended stay.
