on April 12, 1981 we did something amazing. we took man to space in an orbiter that would be in service until today. this morning, at 11:29 am, space shuttle Atlantis took off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on the final shuttle mission, STS-135.

the launch marks the end of the more than 30 year shuttle program to explore and learn more about our world, the solar system, and the universe. it's sad, but it's even more amazing to look back at all of the moments we shared with the entire human race. when Atlantis touches down for the final time in twelve days, those moments will be set in stone, just another chapter in the book of our existence.

Godspeed, Atlantis. and farewell, Space Shuttle Program.
