Atlantis was first launched into space on October 3, 1985 on the STS-51J mission, and yesterday's 10:36 AM CDT launch of STS-135 was witnessed by over one million people and millions more on television. Atlantis has wings once again and has begun its 12 day final mission to the International Space Station.
In case you missed it:
Not including this mission, Atlantis has spent a total of 293 days, 18 hours, 29 minutes and 37 seconds in space and gets to add 12 more days to that total.
