Jason Major, a huge NASA follower and Lights In The Dark blogger, is out at the final NASA shuttle launch of Atlantis today.
He called Gene & Julie to give them the details of what is happening out at the Kennedy Space Center!
After 30 years, NASA is ending their shuttle program. At 10:26am CST today, Atlantis will take off from Kennedy Space Center for the last time. The only thing stopping the launch would be a 70% chance of rain. The flight is the 135th and final space shuttle launch and will be the 33rd lift-off for the Atlantis orbiter. The lucky astronauts to be aboard a historic launch are Rex Walheim, Pilot Douglas Hurley, Commander Christopher Ferguson, and Sandra Magnus.
