Space Shuttle Atlantis on mission STS-135 - 009
Avatars can now get as close as they can to the final Space Shuttle launch at the Kennedy Space Center without having to travel to Florida in real life. The recreation in Second Life is a celebration of this historic event. All ticket proceeds will be donated to the Youth Science Center, a non-profit organization established in 1962 dedicated to improving math and science education for students grades K through 8. Two spots are still open (via raffle) to be a virtual astronaut.
