In the White Room, the closeout crew wished the STS-117 crew good luck 
and best wishes as they secured Atlantis' hatch for launch. The 
astronauts are now going through final checks inside the orbiter to 
prepare for their journey to the International Space Station.

When Atlantis lifts off from Launch Pad 39A, it will be the first launch 
from that launch pad in over 4 years.
