STS-110 Atlantis rolls out to pad 39B (NASA/KSC) The space shuttle Atlantis was rolled out to the launch pad Tuesday for its next flight to the International Space Station. Atlantis was rolled out to Pad 39B at the Kennedy Space Center Tuesday morning, just hours after the shuttle Columbia landed at KSC at the conclusion of mission STS-109. Atlantis is scheduled to launch on April 4 on mission STS-110, the first shuttle mission to ISS this year. The primary purpose of STS-110 is to install the central portion of a truss that will eventually span the station and house solar panels and radiators.
