New Date And Time For Space Shuttle Discovery's Rollout

Space Shuttle Discovery is set to roll out to Launch Pad 39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC), FL, with an upgraded External Tank. First motion is currently targeted for 0001 EDT Wednesday, June 15.

The fully-assembled Space Shuttle vehicle, or stack -- consisting of the orbiter, External Tank (ET) and twin Solid Rocket Boosters --will be mounted on the Mobile Launcher Platform and delivered to the pad via a Crawler Transporter. The four-mile journey from the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) to the pad will take about six hours.

Discovery's initial move to Launch Pad 39B will be covered live on NASA Television. Live commentary will begin at the first motion of the Crawler Transporter and continue for about one hour. Live commentary will provide periodic updates and conclude once Discovery reaches the pad. In addition, NASA TV will broadcast live rollout images from 0500 to 0800.
