Final Shuttle Mission == NASA is advising that they plan to move the shuttle Atlantis from the OPF (orbiter processing facility: the hangar where the shuttle is prepped) to the VAB (vehicle assembly building) beginning at 8 am Tuesday, May 17, 2011, if the Shuttle Endeavour / STS-134 mission launches as scheduled on Monday, May 16, 2011. This is called a “rollover” and takes several hours. In the VAB the shuttles are mated with their booster rockets and placed on the Crawler. When a shuttle is moved from the VAB to the launch pad, that is called a “rollout”. Atlantis is scheduled to launch no earlier than June 28.
