The last of the space agency's retired space shuttles to be museum-bound, Atlantis was rolled out of the 52-story VAB early Nov. 2 to leave on a day-long move to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, 9.8 miles away. There, the orbiter will enter a new $100 million display facility, still under construction, which is set to open to the public in July 2013.
