Check out the latest edition of 'Inside KSC!' The Orbital ATK CRS-7 Cygnus spacecraft was hoisted atop the Atlas V rocket ahead of its launch to the International Space Station, and the Mobile Launch Tower for the Space Launch System rocket was fitted with a critical umbilical line.
We've all heard of yellow submersible vehicles, but a yellow spacecraft? Not so fast -it's just the lighting! The spacecraft is actually white.

In this image, a Kamag transporter hauls the Orbital ATK CRS-7 Cygnus spacecraft to the Vertical Integration Facility to be lifted and mated to the Atlas V rocket.
Dana Hutcherson is part of the NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration team of engineers working with private industry to bring a new class of spacecraft into operation. Her work is vital to return human spaceflight to U.S. soil using a model that calls for closer cooperation among the agency and the private sector. Read more: [ Link ]
Crawler on the move! In preparation for the new Space Launch System rocket, the 50-year-old Crawler Transporter-2 has recently been upgraded with new generators, gear assemblies, jacking, equalizing and leveling (JEL) hydraulic cylinders, roller bearings and brakes were installed, and other components. The Crawlers have a long history, being used for both the Shuttle and Apollo programs.
NASA, Orbital ATK and United Launch Alliance (ULA) have postponed Orbital ATK’s seventh commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station. ULA discovered a new booster hydraulic issue during prelaunch testing. The ULA team is developing a plan to resolve the issue and a new launch date will be determined. The Atlas V rocket and Cygnus remain secure.
Check out our new Headquarters building at Kennedy Space Center! The building that our HQ is currently in has provided us with faithful service since it was built more than 50 years ago. We're sad to see it go, but it's time for an upgrade. The new building will be greener as well, gleaning much of its energy from the solar farms in operation at KSC.
