Space shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to roll out to Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Fla., on Saturday, Nov. 10, as preparations for the STS-122 mission move forward. Atlantis is targeted to lift off Dec. 6 on an 11-day mission to the International Space Station.
The first motion of the shuttle out of Kennedy’s Vehicle Assembly Building is scheduled for 4 a.m. EST. The 3.4-mile journey to the launch pad is expected to take about six hours.
The STS-122 mission will deliver the European Space Agency’s Columbus Laboratory to the International Space Station, bring a new crew member to the outpost and return another to Earth.
