In Orbiter Processing Facility 1 at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, space shuttle Atlantis’ payload bay doors are being closed. The designated shuttle for the STS-129 mission, Atlantis will deliver to the International Space Station two spare gyroscopes, two nitrogen tank assemblies, two pump modules, an ammonia tank assembly and a spare latching end effector for the station’s robotic arm. Atlantis is targeted to launch Nov. 12.
