Welcome back, Atlantis.

The first shuttle, Columbia, blasted off on STS-1 April 12, 1981. Since then, space shuttle crews have fixed satellites, performed scientific studies, and ferried materials and people to International Space Station Alpha, a football field-sized construction project in orbit. The shuttle program has sent 355 people from 16 countries to space, with five space shuttles on a total of 135 missions.

"Thank you Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Endeavour, and our ship, Atlantis."

Until we meet again. When we meet again.
