NASA ends its 30-year program: Space Transportation System – STS
The countdown for the final space shuttle launch is near end now.. Just less than 2 hrs. More than 1 Million people are near the ground of Kennedy Space Center waiting for this historical moment.
Atlantis will carry the Raffaello multipurpose logistics module to deliver supplies, logistics and spare parts including two iPhone 4’s to the International Space Station. See my previous post: Apple iPhone Gone to Space , Where I posted about STS-135.
