After a short weather delay Sunday morning, Space Shuttle Atlantis atop
NASA's Shuttle Aircraft Carrier began its trip across the U.S.
Known as a ferry-flight, the orbiter will make the trip from Edwards Air
Force Base in California to Kennedy's Shuttle Landing Facility in one to
two days, depending on weather conditions.
