In high bay 1 of the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASAs Kennedy Space Center, the 122-foot-long orbiter Discovery is suspended more than 400 feet above the floor after being lifted away from the 154-foot-high External Tank (below) and Solid Rocket Boosters. After demating from its External Tank (ET), the orbiter will be placed on a transporter in the transfer aisle and moved to high bay 3 for remating with another tank, ET-121. Discovery is expected to be rolled back to the launch pad in mid-June for Return to Flight mission STS-114. The launch window extends from July 13 to July 31.
