NASA's Space Shuttle Program
A ship like no other, the space shuttle launched like a rocket and landed like a glider while transporting astronauts to space and back for thirty years. Stand in awe of this American icon at Space Shuttle Atlantis®, permanent home of the orbiter. Explore shuttle missions that secured the future of Hubble Space Telescope and the International Space Station. Learn how to dock and land the shuttle with training simulators, and then strap in for lift-off at Shuttle Launch Experience®. Discover the legacy of NASA's Space Shuttle Program.
Space Shuttle Atlantis shows will be suspended/paused at 10 a.m. and will start again after the ceremony. All sound will be off and all interactives will be closed during the ceremony on Saturday, April 21st, 2018.
