The First of the Last Shuttle Launches

First launched twenty-five years ago in October of 1985, NASA’s Space Shuttle Atlantis is scheduled for its 32nd and final launch this afternoon (at 2:20pm ET). This launch - one of only three remaining missions left in NASA’s Shuttle program - will deliver an Integrated Cargo Carrier and a Russian-built Mini Research Module to the International Space Station.

The end of a wild ride.
