As promised, here is one photo that my husband took with me while visiting the ATLANTIS at the Kennedy Space Center here in Florida last July 4. Hubby and I agreed to just go to one attraction, the Atlantis which is the baby attraction of KSC, newly opened last June 29, 2013.
It was my birthday in 2011, when Atlantis had its final mission/launched. It was a symbolic event because it was the final mission of the American Space Shuttle Program. A sad day to most people in the Space Coast because it means losing their job as well.
The final launch of Atlantis was known as STS 135 and its mission was ISS-International Space Station logistics. The cargo on that launch are "Raffaello Multi-Purpose Logistics Module" and the "Lightweight Multi-Purpose Carrier" (LMC), delivered to the ISS. On this mission, STS-135 had 4 astronauts on board. They safely went back home on July 21,2011.
This baby has a total of 33 missions, 207 crew members, and deployed 14 satellites. The first flight of Atlantis was October 3 in 1985 and came back safely to Earth on the 7th.
You should come and visit the Kennedy Space Center, and see the Space Shuttle Atlantis on display. It is worth the money you are paying for, I can promise you that.
