Endeavour makes it to the Vehicle Assembly Building!


This morning Endeavour rolled over to the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) to become mated to the External Tank (ET) and Solid Rocket Boosters (SRB). Michael Nicholas was able to take some photos since I am in Houston supporting STS-122. Enjoy!

That's more like it! GREAT photos! I especially liked the detail in the first one - you can almost read the SNs on the tiles! Amazing. The second is just beautiful! Why, oh why is NASA killing the Shuttle to go back 40 years, instead of developing it further? Especially now that they seem to be doing things so right!
