And tomorrow it's all over. Cry
Farewell Atlantis and the Shuttle Programme.
At least I have a little souvenir: The Face in Space certificate for STS-135...
Does somebody know what they a doing now (20.55 MET) ?
Edit: If I am not wrong the orbit stage is now coming to an end.

Sadly yes. Only a little less than 15 hours left of this historic final flight. Luckily the ISS stays in orbit at least Grin Just imagine there wouldn't be the ISS. It would be a really bad day for human space flight.

If I am not wrong the orbit stage is now coming to an end.

What do you mean by orbit stage?

They are going to prepare for deorbit.
My english is not really good, so I'm just watching NASA TV and recording.

Don't be worried because of your English. It's actually well understandable Wink I was only confused by the term orbit stage. But you just meant that the earth orbiting stage of the mission is coming to an end. Maybe I was the s****d one Grin

It was raining heavily in Sydney tonight.
I went and stood in the yard anyway and wished her well. The program fueled my imagination from age 12.

Welcome home Atlantis! We are proud of you and the hundreds of thousands of supporting crews and teams that you represent!

Very sad that tomorrow, about 1,500 people will be fired at NASA and more to follow after the Shutles are mothballed and on display Sad

Hey all  (wow..I have been gone a long time).  Im back into ssm2007 with the sad but wonderful launch of the last shuttle mission.

A buddy of mine (that used to work as a trainer in the Shuttle Flight Sim, and now works for a major aerospace company) sent me this link....Very nice!

Well said.

And from now on, all we see, read, and hear about the Shuttle, is history... Embarrassed

I'm very glad the vision keeps on going at least on this place here.

Very sad that tomorrow, about 1,500 people will be fired at NASA and more to follow after the Shutles are mothballed and on display Sad

And isn't it even up to 8,000 all in all within the following month?

I hope some of them will find a nice job somewhere else in the aerospace industries, maybe supporting NASA's new program in the future...
