The Space Shuttle Atlantis sits majestically atop its Mobile Launcher Platform and a Crawler-Transporter which straddle the Launch Pad 39A flame trench. This view shows only a portion of the flame trench, which is about 450 feet long, 58 feet wide and 42 feet deep. The Shuttle has just arrived at the launch pad after the 3.4-mile journey from the Vehicle Assembly Building. Atlantis and its crew of seven are targeted for a May 15 launch. STS-84 will be the sixth Shuttle docking with the Russian Space Station Mir as part of Phase 1 of the International Space Station program. (Photo Release Date: 04/24/97 )
