After being rolled into the transfer isle of the VAB, Atlantis will be lifted vertically and mated with the twin Solid Rocket Boosters and External Tank already stacked on the Mobile Launcher Platform. Atlantis is being readied for mission STS-121, the second Return to Flight mission to the International Space Station. This is Atlantis' 27th space flight and the mission is the 18th flight to the Space Station.
