Space shuttle orbiter Atlantis moves from its processing hangar, Orbiter Processing Facility 2 (OPF-2) to the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) for the final time on Oct. 17th. In this picture, one can see OPF#3 (used to be the favorite hangar for Discovery) and Crawler #2. The last mobile launch platform used by a shuttle (Atlantis) and the new launch platform is towards the top. Bottom right is the scrapping of the Apollo/shuttle era support platforms in progress. The circling vulture is fitting.
