New Year's Resolution for 2017? See a rocket launch at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. #JoinTheJourney Link
Five years ago today, space shuttle Endeavour launched on its final mission, STS-134, from NASA's Kennedy Space Center. Prior to launch, President Obama visited with Endeavour's crew. During the mission, the space shuttle was photographed for the first time docked at the International Space Station by a departing crew member aboard the Russian spacecraft Soyuz. The night landing at Kennedy Space Center completed the fifteen day mission. STS-134 was the penultimate space shuttle mission; STS-135 was added to the schedule and space shuttle Atlantis flew for the final time in July 2011.
