English: Mobile Launcher Platforms are four separate two-story or larger structures used by NASA to serve as a launch platform. The three original MLPs were constructed for the Apollo Program to launch Saturn V rockets in the 1960s and 1970s, and after renovation, have remained in service to launch Space Shuttles. An additional MLP has been constructed for use in the Constellation program. These platforms are carried between the Vehicle Assembly Building and launch pads by the Crawler-transporters.
