Jun 30, 2007- Final roll out preps

Weight & C.G. was completed by first shift today– Endeavour came in at a svelte 200,025 lbs. (empty weight).

Last minute tile work is being completed before the orbiter transporter enters the bay tommorrow-

it will creep between the main landing gear and lift the vehicle for transport to the VAB where it will be mated to the external tank.

We had time to take a picture to commemorate the 4 1/2 years of work we’ve done on the ship to get it ready for rollout (I’m on the left). More pics tomorrow!
