Space Shuttle Columbia atop the mobile launcher platform and crawler/transporter nears the end of its journey from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A, partially obscured by morning mist. Rollout for STS-32 marked the first time a Space Shuttle had been at Pad 39A since January 12, 1986, when Columbia was launched on STS-61C.

Yes, beautiful indeed. Fantastic sense of grandeur.
This image reminds me of Transformers for some reason.

I've not seen a rollout in person. Looks like half a dozen or so people standing on the deck near the edge — which would be a cool trip. Are they just riding or are some of them steering the crawler?
