Atlantis moved for mating to tank & boosters

The space shuttle Atlantis was rolled from the orbiter processing facility to the massive vehicle assembly building early this morning, for mating to her external tank and rocket boosters prior to the twip out to the launch pad.

Atlantis is scheduled to launch no earlier than November 12 at 4:04 pm EST, to begin a 14 day mission to resupply the International Space Station and deliver two equipment storage pallets. The two express logistics carriers will be mounted on the exterior of the station.
