CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.
|CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Inside Orbiter Processing Facility-2 at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, technicians assist in securing space shuttle Atlantis’ left orbital maneuvering system (OMS) pod to a sling for removal.
The work is part of the Space Shuttle Program’s transition and retirement processing of shuttle Atlantis. The OMS pods will be sent to White Sands Space Harbor in New Mexico where they will undergo a complete deservicing and cleaning and then be returned to Kennedy for reinstallation on Atlantis. Atlantis is being prepared for display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida. Photo credit: NASA/Jim Grossmann|
