The sun lights the early morning sky, revealing Space Shuttle Atlantis, atop the Mobile Launcher Platform and Crawler-Transporter, at Launch Pad 39B. It started its 8-hour rollout from the Vehicle Assembly Building high bay 2 (Safe Haven) at 11:20 p.m., Aug. 13, arriving shortly after 7 a.m. Aug. 14. At its immediate left is the 290-foot high water tank that holds 300,000 gallons of water, part of the sound suppression system at the pad. At the edge of the photo can be seen part of the Rotating Service Structure. Atlantis is scheduled for launch Sept. 8 at 8:31 a.m. EDT on mission STS-106. (Photo Release Date: 08/14/2000 )
