After leaving the Vehicle Assembly Building, the Space Shuttle Discovery makes its slow -- up to 1 mile per hour -- trek along the Crawlerway to Launch Pad 39A in preparation for the STS-82 mission. The Shuttle is assembled on a Mobile Launch Platform (MLP), seen in this view taken from above, and the entire assemblage is carried out to the launch pad on the Crawler Transporter, which is underneath the MLP. A seven-member crew will perform the second servicing of the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope (HST) during the 10-day STS-82 mission, which is targeted for a Feb. 11 liftoff.
