KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- Rising clouds of smoke and steam appear to surround Space Shuttle Atlantis as it hurtles toward space on mission STS-112. Liftoff occurred on time at 3:46 p.m. EDT. Along with a crew of six, Atlantis carries the S1 Integrated Truss Structure and the Crew and Equipment Translation Aid (CETA) Cart A. The CETA is the first of two human-powered carts that will ride along the ISS railway, providing mobile work platforms for future spacewalking astronauts. On the 11-day mission, three spacewalks are planned to attach the S1 truss. [Photo courtesy of Scott Andrews] (Photo Release Date: 10/07/2002 )
