Atlantis' Final Journey

On November 2, 2012, Space Shuttle Atlantis made her final journey. She departed High Bay 4 at the Vehicle Assembly Building just before sunrise to go to a ceremony on the space center to transfer the title of the orbiter. After this, Atlantis was parked at Exploration Park for members of the general public to view the orbiter in an open environment with various our exhibits. As the sun sunk lower into the afternoon sky, Atlantis hit the road once more to arrive at her final resting place in a newly constructed facility at the Visitor's Center. The end of the day was marked with a fireworks display.
