Trench Gets a New 'Coat'

May 29, 2009
At Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, workers spray a coat of heat-resistant concrete called Fondue Fyre onto steel grid structures that are welded to the wall of the flame trench.

Repairs are expected to be completed in August, well before the targeted Oct. 8 launch of Atlantis on the NASA Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission.
