Space Shuttle Atlantis (OV-104) was NASA's fourth space-rated space shuttle, named after a two-masted boat, active from1930 to 1966. Construction of Atlantis began in March 1980. When finished, Atlantis was nearly 3.5 tons lighter than the first space-rated Shuttle Columbia and arrived at Kennedy Space Center on April 9, 1985. On Oct. 3, 1985, Atlantis launched on her first space flight, STS 51-J. During mission STS-71, Atlantis made the first Shuttle-Mir docking. Atlantis retired in 2011 and marked the ending of the Shuttle program (STS-135). The orbiter is now on exhibit at KSC Visitor Complex.
