Atlantis Enjoys California Weather :)
So here we are at Edwards Air Force Base! The weather is amazing in California. The 1st picture shows the Mate-Demate Device (MDD) structure that is similar to the one at Kennedy Space Center. The structure helps workers access areas of the orbiter and also help mount and unmount the Orbiter to the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (a modified 747). The 2nd picture is of Atlantis’ lower surface. And lastly there is the 747 that will help carry Atlantis back to KSC!
