The Space Shuttle Atlantis will liftoff for its final mission at 2:20 p.m. EST from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The 12-day trip to the International Space Station will mark the end of Atlantis’ nearly 25 years of service. There are two more space shuttle missions scheduled for later this year, before NASA plans to discontinue the program. (via CNET)
