Space Shuttle Endeavour California Science Center, Construction workers at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida began clearing a path Tuesday (Nov. 29) for the arrival of the space shuttle Atlantis, which is slated to go on display there in 2013.
Employing a pair of large cranes, workers lowered the first of two 100,000-pound (45,359-kilogram) solid rocket boosters (SRBs) off of an exhibit stand and onto a transporter.
Over the next couple of days, construction crews will remove the second booster and an 87,000-pound (39,462-kg) external tank that, for more than a decade, has been on prominent display at the visitor complex.
“The SRBs were put on display in Shuttle Plaza in 1994, and that was followed by the external tank in 1997,” visitor complex spokesperson Andrea Farmer said in an interview with collectSPACE.com.
