The Final Space Shuttle launch - STS-135 Atlantis

NASA's Space Shuttle Atlantis roars into the Heavens as she lifts off for the last time. This mission ( STS-135 ) marks the very last Space Shuttle mission. When Atlantis lands in a few days it will officially mark the end of the Space Shuttle era.

 

It was an amazing honor to be present at the NASA Press Site to record this historic moment...but like most of you, I grew up with the Space Shuttle and it was very sad knowing this was the last time anyone would ever see this awe-inspiring sight.
