End of the Shuttle program

The Shuttle program ended yesterday with the final landing of the Space Shuttle Atlantis.
I've posted about the Shuttle program and the impending cancellation of it before but this time it is done; the shuttles will fly no more and an era has come to an end.

Atlantis landing at Kennedy Space Center for the last time

The Bad Astronomer posted a link to a very nice Shuttle tribute video, which you can see here.

I apologize for the long break from the last post but I became a father for the first time in April and haven't really had the time to post anything since.
I'll try to keep up with the latest in space news again :-)
