Space shuttle lifts off on last mission

July 10, 2011

Former St. Marys resident Jenn Steele, now a resident of Titusville, Fla., submitted several photos of the final NASA space shuttle mission as the space shuttle Atlantis lifted off on Friday, July 8. An estimated one million spectators gathered along Florida's space coast to witness the epic event. Due to overcast skies, many spectators only witnessed about 10 seconds of the launch before the shuttle disappeared into the clouds. Emotions ran high as the 30-year program marked an end of an era commemorating the 135th flight in the space shuttle program.
