Space shuttle Atlantis was moved the evening of May 31, from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida for its STS-135 mission. It arrived at the pad early in the morning of June 1. The move is referred to as a "rollout." Atlantis Commander Chris Ferguson, Pilot Doug Hurley and Mission Specialists Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim answered questions from the media before attending rollout where they shook hands with employees and their family members.

During the 12-day flight, Atlantis’ four astronauts will deliver to the International Space Station the Raffaello multi-purpose logistics module filled with supplies and spare parts that will sustain station operations once the shuttles are retired this summer. Atlantis’ final launch is targeted for July 8. This will be the final flight of the Space Shuttle Program
