Fuel tank ready for final space shuttle flight
[i]The external tank that will fly on NASA's final space shuttle mission was rolled out for delivery to its Florida launch site on Thursday. A brass band and hundreds of handkerchief-waving workers trailed the tank as it was driven to a waiting barge, celebrating in New Orleans-style the completion of their work.
Lying on its side, the 154-foot tank left the final test and checkout building here at the Michoud Assembly Facility to begin the 900-mile sea journey to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.[/i]
