Atlantis Lifts Off!

Hey Space Placers,

   Atlantis lifted off after a hold at T-31 seconds and thundered into orbit for the very last time. Carrying as much cargo as possible to the International Space Station (ISS), Atlantis is scheduled to land on July 20th - the anniversary date of Apollo 11.

  The end of an era - the Space Shuttle era - is one step closer with the successful lift off and ascent to orbit of Atlantis.
