Coast to Coast: Crawling Along

Ever since the Apollo days, any manned spacecraft being launched by NASA is assembled in the Vehicle Assembly Building and moved to its launch pad aboard the Crawler-Transporter.

Due to thunderstorms, the STS-128 rollout Tuesday was delayed two hours. The crawlerway was a morass of mud, so they had to go very slowly and clean its treads as they went along.

My NASA friend sent me the below photos of this unique event, which created photo opportunities that don’t normally happen.
