Atlantis is trending on the 135th and final launch of the 30-year old space shuttle program. Hundreds of thousands gathered at Floridaapos;s Kennedy Space Center to watch the shuttle begin its 12-day resupply mission to the International Space Station. When it returns to earth, Atlantis will join Discovery and Endeavor in retirement. Private companies and Russiaapos;s Soyuz spacecraft will take future cargo and astronauts to and from the space station, as NASA plans to devote its resources to unmanned deep-space exploration of asteroids and Mars.
