Description: 
Hiawatha Brown, Heavy Equipment Operator for United Space Alliance (USA), approaches launch pad 39A at the NASA Kennedy Space Center as he drives the Astrovan carrying the STS-135 crew on Friday July 8, 2011 in Cape Canaveral, Fla. The Astrovan is a modified 1983 Airstream and has been in use to carry crews to the launch pads since 1984. A close look at the odometer shows it has a little more than 26,521 miles at the time of this photo. The launch of Atlantis, STS-135, is the final flight of the shuttle program, a 12-day mission to the International Space Station. Photo Credit: (NASA/Jerry Ross)
