Space shuttle external fuel tank ET-129 was rolled out at NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans Aug. 6 and loaded onto an enclosed barge for a five-day sea journey to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Fla. Upon its expected arrival Aug. 11 at Kennedy, ET-129 will be joined to its twin solid rocket boosters and space shuttle Endeavour to fly on the STS-126 mission to the International Space Station. Endeavour is targeted to launch on Nov. 10.
