"Atlantis" was towed from her hangar in Orbiter Processing Facility-1 to the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) on 6 October, 2009 at about 7 a.m. EDT. The move, known as rollover, was competed at 8:25 a.m. when Atlantis arrived in the VAB transfer aisle. Here she sits awaiting the completion of the detailed photography that is used as reference to make sure that no damage happens to her during takeoff. These reference photos are compared with those taken in Space to identify potentially catastrophic damage.
