This image is of Atlantis as it is prepared for launch attempt #2 for the STS-125 mission. Located in the VAB transfer aisle the lift harness is lowered over the orbiter, attached and then the orbiter is lifted almost to the ceiling as it is moved to highbay 3 where the ET/booster stack awaits attachment to Atlantis. Opposite Atlantis in the transfer aisle are the flight components of the Ares 1-X test article to be flown this summer.
