Atlantis in Retirement

Atlantis, one of the U.S. Space Shuttles, rests at its new home at the Kennedy Space center. During its career, Atlantis joined up with the Russian MIR, deployed the Compton Observatory and several planetary probes, and carried key components of the International Space Station. It now has a home worthy of its past glory.
