Around Launch Pad 39A, photographers pick their spot to snap shots of Space Shuttle Endeavour, which rolled to the pad over night. First motion out of the Vehicle Assembly Building was at 8:10 p.m. July 10, and the shuttle was hard down on the pad at 3:02 a.m. July 11. Endeavour is scheduled to launch on mission STS-118, the 22nd mission to the International Space Station. Photo Credit: NASA/Ken Thornsley
