Launch Day Events
August 4, 2005
The Astrovan (on the road at the bottom center of photo), carrying the STS-114 crew, drives back from Launch Pad 39B after the scrub of the Return to Flight mission. The scrub was called due to a faulty sensor reading in the External Tank. The center of the photo shows the NASA News Center surrounded by trailers, satellite trucks and vehicles of the media covering the historic launch.
