Space Shuttle Photos – A view from inside bay three of the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) shows the Space Shuttle Discovery washed in white xenon light as it makes a nighttime departure from the VAB on its way to Pad 39B. Discovery will fly for mission STS-26 now scheduled for launch in early September. It has a five man crew and the TDRS-C payload. First motion in the Shuttle’s move from the VAB toward the pad came at 12:50 a.m. July 4, 1988.
