ET-117 Ships From Michoud
Lockheed Martin and NASA personnel at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans were on hand as external tank ET-117 rolled out April 2 to be loaded onto its seagoing transport for shipment to the Kennedy Space Center, Fla. The tank is expected to arrive at Port Canaveral, Fla., April 6. ET-117 is scheduled to fly on the STS-118 mission later this year, but could possibly be substituted for ET-124 on the next shuttle mission, STS-117.
