Shuttle Atlantis to make its final journey

On Friday, the last space shuttle will make its final journey. Atlantis, the last orbiter from the retired shuttle fleet to move to its exhibition space, will travel from the Vehicle Assembly Building at Kennedy Space Center (pictured above) to the visitors complex. The daylong, 10-mile journey will include a couple stops, one private, before it ends at the building still under construction where it will go on display next summer. For the journeyworkers will have to remove and replace 120 light poles, 23 traffic signals, 56 traffic signs and one high-voltage power line to make way for the orbiter. Tickets and advance reservations are required to attend the event. Several packages are available; cost is $50-$90 for adults, $40-$80 children. Click here for information.
