RBSP Arrives Back on 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 arrives at Space Launch Complex 41 once again. The Atlas V rocket was rolled back to the Vertical Integration Facility on Aug. 26 to ensure the launch vehicle and spacecraft were secured and protected from inclement weather caused by Tropical Storm Isaac.
