RBSP Rolls Back to the Pad
At Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket carrying NASA's twin Radiation Belt Storm Probes rolls out of the Vertical Integration Facility at Space Launch Complex 41 heading to the launch pad. The Atlas V rocket was rolled back to the facility on Aug. 26 to ensure the launch vehicle and spacecraft were secured and protected from inclement weather caused by Tropical Storm Isaac.
