Space shuttle Discovery was moved the evening of Sept. 20 from the Vehicle Assembly Building
to Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida for its STS-133 mission.
It arrived at the pad early in the morning of Sept. 21. The move is referred to
as a "rollout." The STS-133 mission to the International Space Station is the final
scheduled flight for Discovery before it is retired.
Discovery will carry the Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM) packed with supplies and critical spare parts, as well as the first human-like robot in space, Robonaut 2, to the station. Discovery is targeted to launch on Nov. 1.
