Children Greet Atlantis

November 15, 2012
Flag waving children welcome space shuttle Atlantis as it approaches Space Florida's Exploration Park. Atlantis will pause during its 10-mile journey to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex providing a viewing opportunity for guests before completing the trip to its new home. As part of transition and retirement of the Space Shuttle Program, Atlantis is to be displayed at Kennedy's Visitor Complex beginning in the summer of 2013. Over the course of its 26-year career, Atlantis traveled 125,935,769 miles during 307 days in space over 33 missions. Image credit: NASA/ Tony Gray Nov. 2, 2012
