Space shuttle Atlantis lifted off July 8 on the final flight of the shuttle program, STS-135, a 12-day mission to the International Space Station.
Atlantis carries a crew of four and the Raffaello multipurpose logistics module containing supplies and spare parts for the space station.
The STS-135 astronauts are: Commander Chris Ferguson, Pilot Doug Hurley, and Mission Specialists Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim.
This Friday was a monumental day for the United States of America, a day of decline, of national doom; this puts an end to a fifty years of men space flights by the United States.
When the Atlantis comes back to earth (hopefully) Us will be out of business for what concerns men’s space flights. It is a fall back from the magnificent achievements of Kennedy and Eisenhower.
This is indeed a tragic day, Nasa is moribund, the Space Program has come to an end.
There is money just for wars and Wall Street.
The American dream has come to its complete end.
No more democracy, no more freedom, no more law and more than anything no more dreams.
Just the crude reality of misery, despair, future poverty for many and wars.
