The external tank for space shuttle Atlantis' STS-125 mission to NASA's Hubble Space Telescope moves toward the open door of the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The tank arrived at the turn basin earlier in the day aboard the Pegasus barge. Inside the building, the tank will be raised to vertical, lifted and moved into a checkout cell. Stacking of the tank and solid rocket boosters is scheduled for Aug. 7. Atlantis is targeted to launch Oct. 8. Photo credit: NASA/Amanda Diller
