The Crawler-transporter moving along the Crawlerway, at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, at the brisk speed of 2 mph (when loaded it can only move at 1 mph).

The Crawler-transporter was probably on its way to launch pad 39B to pick up the Space Shuttle Endeavour, which had been placed there as a rescue vessel for Atlantis. Since Atlantis managed to get to Hubble without any problems, Endeavour was going back to the Vehicle Assembly Building to be refitted for the STS-127 mission to the International Space Station in June 2009.

Notice how the gravel, in the crawler’s tracks, has been crushed into sand. That is why Alabama river gravel was chosen, harder gravel would not have been crushed into sand but just cracked and thus possibly damage the belts!
