One Week: Remembering the Last Landing of Atlantis

At 5:57 am EDT on July 21, 2011 the orbiter Atlantis landed at Kennedy Space Center, completing the STS-135 mission and bringing an end to the shuttle program. With memories of the launch still very fresh in my mind it’s hard to believe it’s already been a week since Atlantis’ final wheelstop. Very hard to believe.

“Mission complete, Houston. After serving the world for over 30 years the space shuttle has earned its place in history, and it’s come to a final stop.”

— STS-135 Commander Christopher Ferguson
