Space Shuttle Lands in Florida at 5:56 AM ET [Update]

The last Space Shuttle Mission is about to end now.

Space Shuttle Lands in Florida at 5:56 AM ET
 
 

Space Shuttle Atlantis has left the orbit and is landing at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 5:56am Eastern Standard Time. This is very last Shuttle Mission for NASA. Atlantis has been in space for about 12 days. Atlantis launched into space on July 8 to dock at the ISS. Space Shuttle Atlantis was carrying a crew of four and the Raffaello multipurpose logistics module containing supplies and spare parts for the space station. The STS-135 astronauts are: Commander Chris Ferguson, Pilot Doug Hurley, and Mission Specialists Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim.

With the end of the Shuttle missions it will get much harder to get stuff up and from the ISS. NASA will need a new key mission to stay relevant. Other countries and especially private Space companies are set to take the lead in Space exploration.

You can watch the landing of the Space Shuttle Atlantis live on the NASA homepage now.

Update:
That's it folks. The Space Shuttle has landed for the last time. It is over. 30 years of Space Shuttle missions are now history.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
