A NASA Fire Rescue truck, which is part of the landing convoy at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, heads out toward space shuttle Atlantis after it rolled to a stop on the Shuttle Landing Facility's Runway for the final time. Atlantis marked the 26th nighttime landing of NASA's Space Shuttle Program and the 78th landing at Kennedy. It also was the final mission for the shuttle program.

STS-135 was the 33rd and final flight for Atlantis, which has spent 307 days in space, orbited Earth 4,848 times and traveled 125,935,769 miles. For more information on the space shuttle era, visit www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/flyout. Photo credit: NASA/Sandra Joseph and Kevin O'Connell
