The Up-Close Vehicle Assembly Building Tour began last November at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. The Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) is where rockets are built before they are moved to a launch pad. Now, space shuttle orbiter Atlantis is in storage in the VAB. Tour guests can see Atlantis before the orbiter is towed into its new home at the Space Center Visitor Center.
You can see video of Atlantis in the VAB here:
Workers are making steady progress. Compare photos of the site here to our previous article about the gallery.
