October 24, 2009--An external fuel tank is towed toward NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building at the Kennedy Space Center after the tank was shipped by barge from New Orleans to Florida for storage.

The reusable tank, known as ET-134, will be used to launch the space shuttle Endeavour on a mission to the International Space Station, slated for February 2010.
