The final launch of Atlantis and the Space Shuttle Program is set to launch on July 8th at 11:26 am. July 8th will be a sad day in American history. I am personally mad that there isn't a replacement in the works. For those interested, here are updates of the decommissioning work on the other Shuttle's. Discovery Update: It is being prepared to be moved to the VAB for further decommissioning work and setup the landing gear to be remotely operated. Endeavour Update: It's spent drag chute pyrotechnics have been removed along with all 3 Space Shuttle main engines. Workers are currently working on its hypergolic system. Here is a picture of Pad 39B as of June 7th being converted to a clean launch pad like it was back during the Apollo program.
