Remembering: The Year in Pictures
Remembering: The Year in Pictures After 30 years and 135 flights, the United States' space shuttle program had ended. On July 8, 2011, the last shuttle—Atlantis—roared into a blue Florida sky to carry four tons of supplies and spare parts to the International Space Station. With Atlantis and its sisters Discovery and Endeavour now headed for museums, the space station will now depend on Russian, Japanese, and European rockets to deliver supplies, and hope for privately built supply ships to become available soon.
