The move began at about 6:30 a.m. Friday morning with the shuttle backing out of Kennedy Space Center's Vehicle Assembly Building. Atlantis moved past the Orbiter Processing Facility hangars, which once were the home of NASA's space shuttle fleet. Atlantis was also scheduled to make two ceremonial stops along the way so employees of the Kennedy Space Center, and then the public, could pay tribute to the historic shuttle.
