STS-134: Roll over and 'hoist and mate'

The two image sets below show Endeavour's roll over from Orbiter Processing Facility 2 to the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. After this follows what engineers call 'hoist and mate': once the Shuttle has arrived at VAB, it is erected and attached to the external tank and solid rocket boosters.
