Atlantis’ main gear touchdown on Runway 15 of the KSC Shuttle Landing Facility kicks up swirls of dust reflected in the runway lights. Atlantis and crew traveled 4.9 million miles on the 11-day, 19-hour, 11-minute mission STS-106. Main gear touchdown occurred on-time at 3:56:48 a.m. EDT. During the mission to the International Space Station, the crew transferred nearly 5,000 pounds of equipment and supplies for use by the first resident crew expected to arrive in November. STS-106 was the 99th flight in the Shuttle program and the 22nd for Atlantis. STS-106 also marked the 15th nighttime landing in Shuttle history and the 23rd consecutive landing at KSC
