SPACE SHUTTLE ATLANTIS SET TO MOVE TO VEHICLE ASSEMBLY BUILDING

NASA invites news media to witness an important milestone for the
upcoming Space Shuttle Atlantis mission, designated STS-115. On
Monday, July 24, Atlantis is scheduled to be moved out of its hangar
at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla. The first motion is expected at
6 a.m. EDT. Media must arrive at Kennedy's News Center by 5 a.m. to
attend the event.

The move from the Orbiter Processing Facility to the Vehicle Assembly
Building is referred to as a "rollover." Inside the assembly
building, Atlantis will be attached to its external fuel tank and
twin solid rocket boosters.

Atlantis' launch window begins Aug. 28. During its 11-day mission to
the International Space Station, the STS-115 crew of six astronauts
will install the Port 3/4 truss segment with its two large solar
arrays.

Permanently badged media should contact Kennedy's News Center at
321-867-2468 by 4 p.m. Friday, July 21. As dates and times of events
are subject to change, updates are available by calling 321-867-2525.
Media without Kennedy credentials should submit their request via the
accreditation Web site at:

https://media.ksc.nasa.gov/

Video of the rollover will air on NASA TV's Video File. For NASA TV
