CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- This is a 3-D image of the crawler-transporter as it slowly hauls space shuttle Endeavour from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The gigantic tracked mover weighs about 18 million pounds with the space shuttle, two solid rocket boosters, external fuel tank and mobile launcher platform attached. It takes six to eight hours to complete the 3.4-mile trip along crushed Alabama river rock at a speed of about 1 mph. To view this image, use green and magenta 3-D glasses. Endeavour and its six-member STS-134 crew will deliver the Express Logistics Carrier-3, Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer-2 (AMS), a high-pressure gas tank, additional spare parts for the Dextre robotic helper and micrometeoroid debris shields to the International Space Station. Endeavour's final launch is targeted for April 19 at 7:48 p.m. EDT. For more information visit, http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/shuttlemissions/sts134/index.html.
