Following closely on the heels of Saturday's successful landing of space shuttle Discovery, space shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to roll out to Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida early Tuesday morning.
The first motion of the shuttle out of Kennedy's Vehicle Assembly Building is scheduled for 4:00 a.m. EDT. The process is expected to take approximately six hours. Atlantis is targeted to launch on May 12 on the STS-125 mission to service NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
