Pegasus Barge

This is a picture of the Pegasus barge which is towed from NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans. This is how the external tanks are transported to Kennedy Space Center! Here's a series of pictures to show you how the external tank arrives to the Vehicle Assembly Building to get ready to mate to the Solid Rocket Boosters and the Orbiter.

I love how you educate us on all the different events that make the space shuttle launch possible! I'm sure your family and friends are proud of you.

Hello,

Would you consider releasing the etout image to wikipedia.org? Specifically, I would like to add it to the DIRECT article. I think that wikipedia.org needs a barge article, also, but I have no special knowledge of the subject.

Thanks,

Sure. You would just need to site the photos from nasa.gov
