NASA's Fla. visitor center clearing way for shuttle arrival
[i]Construction workers at NASA's Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida began clearing a path Tuesday (Nov. 29) for the arrival of space shuttle Atlantis, which is slated to go on display there in 2013.
Employing a pair of large cranes, workers from Beyel Brothers Crane and Rigging lowered the first of two 100,000 pound (45,359 kg.) solid rocket boosters (SRB's) off of its exhibit stand and onto a transporter. Over the next couple of days, the 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.[/i]
