Casual Friday — Shuttle Atlantis, from the inside

An unprecedented, up-close, inside (literally!) look in high-definition of space shuttle Atlantis as it was readied for “towback” from Kennedy’s Shuttle Landing Facility runway to Orbiter Processing Facility-1 following its May 26 landing on STS-132 (direct link for non-Flash devices is here).

After every shuttle landing, about 150 trained workers assist the crew out and prepare the shuttle for towing atop a large diesel-driven tractor to its processing hangar.
