saintory writes “Shuttle Atlantis landed this morning after flying its final official mission. In its 25-year service, the shuttle Atlantis has logged over 120 million miles.” After a successful mission to deliver a research module to the International Space Station, the craft landed at Kennedy Space Center, and will “go through the normal flow of prelaunch preparations in order to serve as the ‘launch-on-need’ vehicle for Endeavour’s STS-134 mission, the last scheduled flight of the Space Shuttle Program.” Congratulations to the people aboard and on the ground who engineered the shuttle’s successful return.
