Shuttle Atlantis

This image from 1996 shows space shuttle Atlantis as it began the slow journey to Launch Pad 39A from the Vehicle Assembly Building. This dramatic view looking directly down onto the shuttle atop the Mobile Launcher Platform and crawler-transporter was taken from the VAB roof approximately 525 feet (160 meters) above the ground.
