Atlantis -- Space Shuttle Roll-Out

Here we are at the Roll Out of the last Space Shuttle that will take off.  Atlantis.  She is the last of the Space shuttle Orbiter Fleet to fly into space.  Such a bittersweet time for these folks who have worked on such a magnificent program over the years.  I'm sure tears will be shed by many.  But we need to keep up with technology and advance the space program, so this good thing must come to an end.
Here is my youngest with Astronaut Mike Good before the roll out.

Here we are waiting for the event to begin, sitting with friends.
Can you see Atlantis in the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB)??
On her way out!
Isn't she beautiful!!  You can even see her name on the side!  Just click on any of these photos to make them larger to view.
