Shuttle Atlantis completed its the last flight.. / May 27, 2010 /

Shuttle Atlantis landed successfully in Florida at the airfield at the Kennedy Space Center. The official site of NASA reported.

Together with the shuttle returned to Earth six astronauts — the ship’s captain, Ken Ham, pilot Tony Antonelli and specialists Garrett Reisman, Michael Goode, Steve Bowen and Piers Sellers.

«Atlantis,» conducted in orbit a total of 12 days. During that time, astronauts made three spacewalks, during which they have strengthened the case for the International Space Station for six new batteries and radio-controlled robotic arm. In addition, an internal volume of the station was expanded by Russian module «Dawn», which brought the shuttle in orbit.

This flight was the 32-m and the last for «Atlantis» — now it should be written off. The first flight of this shuttle mission undertaken in 1985.

Currently, NASA is gradually winding down the work shuttle. After completing the shuttle American astronauts on the ISS will deliver the Russian Soyuz.
