Riding atop a mobile launching platform, the Atlas 5 rocket is rolled from its assembly building to the launch pad at Cape Canaveral's Complex 41 Thursday morning just hours before its planned liftoff time carrying the Inmarsat 4-F1 communications satellite payload. Although the launch attempt was later scrubbed, the rocket remained on the pad during the 24-hour postponement. Photo: Pat Corkery/Lockheed Martin
