KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- A train carrying space shuttle reusable solid rocket motor segments from the ATK Launch Systems manufacturing site in Brigham City,Utah, to NASA?s Kennedy Space Center in Florida was derailed May 2. At the site of the train mishap involving eight NASA solid rocket booster segment cars, a handling fixture has been attached to a box car being used as a spacer between the segment cars so that it can be removed from the rails. The solid rocket booster cars can be seen behind it. The train was traveling over the Meridian & Bigbee railroad near Pennington, Ala., at the time of the mishap.. The hardware was intended for use on shuttle Discovery's STS-120 mission in October and shuttle Atlantis's STS-122 mission in December. These segments are interchangeable, and ATK Launch Systems has replacement units that could be used for the shuttle flights, if necessary.
