The sun glares overhead as space shuttle Atlantis is on display for guests at Space Florida's Exploration Park where it paused during its 10-mile journey to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. The stop will provide a viewing opportunity before completing the trip to its new home.
As part of transition and retirement of the Space Shuttle Program, Atlantis is to be displayed at Kennedy's visitor complex beginning in the summer of 2013. Over the course of its 26-year career, Atlantis traveled 125,935,769 miles during 307 days in space over 33 missions. For more information, visit http://www.nasa.gov/transition.
