GOES-R Rollout from VIF to Pad 41

The United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket and its GOES-R payload were moved to the pad today as preparations continue for Saturday’s launch from Space Launch Complex 41. The Atlas V is in its 541 configuration, which means it has the 5-meter-diameter payload fairing, four solid-fueled boosters and the Centaur upper stage is equipped with a single engine. Liftoff remains on schedule for 5:42 p.m. EST tomorrow. Photo credit: NASA/Ben Smegelsky
