Summary

The Crawler Transporter brings the Space Shuttle Discovery on its Mobile Launcher Platform into position at Launch Pad 39B, following rollout from the Vehicle Assembly Building. The Fixed Service Structure and the Rotating Service Structure, permanent parts of the launch pad, are left of the Shuttle. Discovery and its crew of five are targeted for a June 8 liftoff on a satellite deployment mission, STS-70. Meanwhile, sister ship Atlantis is poised for launch from Pad 39A on a mission to rendezvous and dock with the Russian Mir Space Station. Atlantis is scheduled to lift off on STS-71 no earlier than June 22. ..Image # : 95PC-0668
