On April 13, 1985, Space Shuttle Atlantis arrived at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) to be prepped for its maiden flight. Over the following 26 years, Atlantis would go on to launch 33 times – deploying satellites & planetary probes Magellan & Galileo, delivering vital components to the International Space Station, & pioneering the Shuttle-Mir era. In July of 2011, NASA’s final shuttle mission was flown by Atlantis (STS-135), marking the end of the Shuttle Era. Today, Atlantis is on full display at the historic Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida.
This year’s EPIC Space Coast Yuri’s Night party will take place underneath Shuttle Atlantis exactly 34 years to the day since the orbiter arrived at KSC. Come join us to celebrate this historic spacecraft, the excitement of space exploration, & the anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s monumental flight into orbit.
