KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- Launch Pads 39A (foreground) and 39B are both seen in this photo, each with a Shuttle in place. Pad 39A holds Space Shuttle Discovery, which rolled out July 2 to be prepared for launch on mission STS-105 in August. Pad 39B holds Space Shuttle Atlantis, which is scheduled to launch Thursday, July 12, on mission STS-104. At right are the 290-foot water tanks that provide 300,000 gallons of water during liftoff. They are part of the sound suppression water system at each pad

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- Space Shuttle Atlantis is ready to roll back to the Vehicle Assembly Building via the crawler-transporter. In the VAB workers will conduct inspections, make continuity checks and conduct X-ray analysis on the 36 solid rocket booster cables located inside each booster?s system tunnel. An extensive evaluation of NASA?s SRB cable inventory revealed conductor damage in four (of about 200) cables on the shelf. Shuttle managers decided to prove the integrity of the system tunnel cables already on Atlantis before launching Jan. 19. The launch has been rescheduled no earlier than Feb. 6

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- Space Shuttle Atlantis [ http://mediaarchive.ksc.nasa.gov/../../subjects/atlantis.htm ] (right) inches its way at 1 mph atop the crawler-transporter back to the Vehicle Assembly Building [ http://mediaarchive.ksc.nasa.gov/../../subjects/vab.htm ] from Launch Pad 39A [ http://mediaarchive.ksc.nasa.gov/../../subjects/lc39a.htm ] (upper left). A panorama view from the top of the VAB shows the proximity of the pad to the Atlantic Ocean (background) plus the 3.4-mile crawlerway leading from the pad to the VAB. The water areas on both sides of the crawlerway are part of the Banana River.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In the Vehicle Assembly Building, Richard Bruns, a United Space Alliance SRB technician, begins to detach the SRB system tunnel cover on the 36 cables inside. The SRB is part of Space Shuttle Atlantis, rolled back from Launch Pad 39A in order to conduct tests on the cables. A prior extensive evaluation of NASA?s SRB cable inventory on the shelf revealed conductor damage in four (of about 200) cables. Shuttle managers decided to prove the integrity of the system tunnel cables already on Atlantis before launching. Workers are conducting inspections, making continuity checks and conducting X-ray analysis on the cables. The launch has been rescheduled no earlier than Feb. 6.
