Endeavour sits atop the Mobile Launcher Platform (MLP) in High Bay #03 for the last time, two days before final rollout to launch pad 39A, as seen from the 34th floor of the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), approximately 400 feet above ground. Top view of the "Space Transportation System" (Space Shuttle) which is the combination of the orbiter, the external tank, and the two solid rocket boosters. (The orbiter itself is usually incorrectly referred to as the "Space Shuttle.") Combined, these are referred to as the "Stack". The platforms that are surrounding the stack are retractable.
