Atlas 5 rocket awaits rollback to hangar


Posted: February 18, 2012

The United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket sits on Complex 41 following a pair of weather-related scrubs awaiting rollback to the assembly building. The rocket will stay in the nearby hangar for a few days until the Eastern Range becomes available again for the next launch attempt.

These images were taken Saturday morning as photographers retrieve their sound-activated cameras from around the launch pad.

See our Mission Status Center for the latest news on the launch.
