Atlas V Arrives at Cape Canaveral

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- The Atlas V first stage (left) and Centaur upper stage to support the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) mission approach the Atlas Spaceflight Operations Center on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. A United Launch Alliance Atlas V, in the 541 configuration with four solid rocket boosters attached, will be used to loft MSL into space. The MSL rover, Curiosity, has 10 science instruments which will search for habitable environments on Mars that could support life, past or present. MSL is scheduled to launch Nov. 25 from Space Launch Complex 41 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. For more information, visit http://www.nasa.gov/msl.
