The Space Shuttle Atlantis begins the slow journey back to Launch Pad 39A from the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB). 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. Atlantis is scheduled to lift off on Mission STS-79 around September 12. (Photo Release Date: 08/20/96 )
