Took a lot of work to get 135 to even happen from the guys at NASA and with lots of ups and down I'm glad its happening. I'm going to be sad though tonight, we'll never witness the crawler take a shuttle to the pad again.. something a lot of us has grown up watching. Godspeed Space Shuttle Program & Atlantis.

And this is a good reminder that just because one of your fellow space enthusiasts occasionally voices doubts about the SpaceX schedule announcements or is cautious about believing SpaceX has licked a problem before actually seeing proof that's true, it doesn't mean they hate SpaceX.

Looks like they've swung the Pad A water tank camera over to the VAB, too...

Chris,

Do you know if NASA PR is attempting to somehow photo both landing and rollout into one pic?  If's it's even possible?  Maybe by Heli or Aircraft?

Thx.
