Space shuttle Atlantis blasted off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Friday, marking the final launch of NASA's space shuttle program.
NASA is retiring its flagship fleet after 30 years of service. Atlantis, along with Endeavour, Discovery, Columbia and Challenger, have collectively carried humans more than a half a billion miles in orbit around the Earth, spanning 130 flights.
"Final liftoff of Atlantis. Shoulders of the space shuttle. Ameria will continue the dream," an official from NASA's launch control announced.
