Space Shuttle Atlantis Move Photo Opportunity Postponed
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- The move of space shuttle Atlantis in the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), which had been scheduled for Feb. 2, has been postponed due to a minor issue with ground support equipment. A new move date has not been scheduled yet.

Atlantis currently is in the VAB transfer aisle and will be moved into the building's high bay 4 for temporary storage.

Atlantis is being prepared for public display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in 2013.
