Sorry for the late update ......spacecraft Atlantis is back home on this Wednesday from its final mission and the landing was smooth.My earlier post was on last inspection of Atlantis before landing.

It has made 5 military missions, 7 flights to the Russian Mir Space station and 11 to ISS ( International Space Station).It is expected that someday Atlantis will be put in museum in ground.
