CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (AP) -- Space shuttle Atlantis was hauled to the launch pad early Wednesday, a major step toward a mission to resume construction of the international space station for the first time in three years.

The window for launching Atlantis starts August 27 and lasts until September 13, but NASA managers are considering opening up the window a day earlier. NASA managers are wary of launching the shuttle too late in the window since a Russian Soyuz vehicle with three crew members is scheduled to launch from Kazakhstan on a trip to the international space station in mid-September.
