Space Shuttle Atlantis made its final landing on the morning of July 21, 2011. As millions of kids watched Shuttle Atlantis made a picture perfect final landing at the Kennedy Space Center. Sonic booms were heard and mission control gave us memorable final words as the voice of mission control says,
“Piercing the predawn skies the Space Shuttle announces its arrival at the launch site with its signature twin sonic booms having gone sub sonic for the last time.”
“With a fitting elegance for its final moments of flight/Atlantis takes one last lap around the Kennedy Space Center.”
“Having fired the imagination of a generation, a ship like no other is placed in history secured. The space shuttle pulls into port for the last time its voyage at an end.”
With the end of this era us kids can hardly wait for a new era in space exploration.
