Payload canister inside the SSPF this morning with the unpressurized return payload from STS-132, which is now out of the canister.

Go on, let's pack it with ORUs and fly it on 135! ;D

Workers watch closely as the booster segment is being lowered onto a transportation and storage pallet in the Rotation, Processing and Surge Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. After the segments are stacked, they will be transported to the Vehicle Assembly Building. The segments will be used for space shuttle Atlantis on what currently is planned as the "launch on need," or potential rescue mission for the final shuttle flight, Endeavour's STS-134 mission.

Class of 2009 Astronaut Candidates near Atlantis in OPF-1, it is certain that they will never fly in an orbiter  :'(

1. When will the crew of STS-335 be announced?
2. Will STS-335 have a mission patch even if it won't fly (wish like that)

No idea when it will be announced, but you can usually look at who is up in the rotation to make an educated guess.  With that sort of guess work, Ferguson would probably be CDR.

It's doubtful that the mission would have a mission patch if it is to be STS-335.  No special LON mission has had a patch (i.e. STS-400).  But if the mission become STS-135, it will most certainly have a patch.

STS-400 had a patch..

Like Philip said, the "patches" for STS-400 weren't official.  They were just quick-drawn Photoshop drawings that were circulated.  STS-335 might have one of these, sure.  But it's highly unlikely that you'd see an official emblem.  However, like I said, if STS-135 is approved, you'd see an official patch since that's an actual mission instead of a rescue flight.

Can someone give information on STS-335 processing updates or upcoming milestones in the flow?

Not OPF processing, but the left forward assembly for the boosters for this flight (BI-146) was moved from the Assembly Refurbishment Facility to the VAB transfer aisle this morning.  (Stacking won't begin for a while -- not until after the MLP that the STS-133 vehicle is using is available.)

With the passage of S. 3729 last night by the House and after being signed by the President, STS-335 will officially become STS-135

STS-3XX is simply  a contingency option now, ie there is not a STS-334 mission unless called up.
