Five Years Since The Last Shuttle Launch

Hi, everyone. I almost forgot. Five years ago today, July 8, 2011, Atlantis, as STS-135 roared off launchpad 39A at Cape Canaveral with its four-person crew. This was the last launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle program. I can’t believe it’s been five years so soon, but I guess that’s how it goes, isn’t it?

If you have a few minutes, have a look at this these photos, from Alan Taylor at the Atlantic. It’s all great stuff.
