PowerPoint Presentation: At NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, shuttle Discovery pauses in between Orbiter Processing Facility-3 and the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) during a move called "rollover" on September 9th, 2010. Once inside the VAB, the shuttle will be joined to its solid rocket boosters and external fuel tank. Later, Discovery was scheduled to "rollout" to Launch Pad 39A for its launch to the International Space Station on the STS-133 mission. (NASA/ Dimitri Gerondidakis ) PowerPoint Presentation: At NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, space shuttle Discovery begins its nighttime trek, known as "rollout," from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A. It will take the shuttle, attached to its external fuel tank, twin solid rocket boosters and mobile launcher platform, about six hours to complete the move atop a crawler-transporter. (NASA/Frankie Martin) PowerPoint Presentation: As the sun begins to rise at Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the STS-133 crew members are in the pad's White Room preparing to board space shuttle Discovery during the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test (TCDT). (NASA/Jim Grossmann) PowerPoint Presentation: Bathed in bright xenon lights, space shuttle Discovery makes its nighttime trip from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. (NASA/Jim Grossmann) PowerPoint Presentation: On Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, preparations are under way to reattach the vent line to the ground umbilical carrier plate (GUCP) on space shuttle Discovery's external fuel tank. A hydrogen gas leak at that location during tanking for Discovery's STS-133 mission to the International Space Station caused the launch attempt to be scrubbed Nov. 5. (NASA/Ben Smegelsky ) PowerPoint Presentation: Photographers from around the world set up to take photos Wednesday night, Feb. 23, 2011 as the Rotating Service Structure is rolled back from the space shuttle Discovery. PowerPoint Presentation: At NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, space shuttle Discovery is illuminated by bright xenon lights on Launch Pad 39A after the rotating service structure was moved away. (NASA/Frankie Martin) PowerPoint Presentation: Rising on twin columns of fire and creating rolling clouds of smoke and steam, space shuttle Discovery lifts off Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida on a picturesque, warm, late February afternoon. Launch of the STS-133 mission was at 4:53 p.m. EST on Feb. 24.
