Shuttle Links To Space Station

Preparations are underway for the final flight of NASA's 30 year space shuttle program.

Atlantis is scheduled to lift-off July 8th on a mission to the International Space Station.

The crew of Atlantis is scheduled to arrive at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida this afternoon.

Atlantis will have a different look when it blasts into space.

A NASA logo will show the U.S. flag and two sets of stars.

Fourteen stars are in memory of astronauts killed in the Challenger and Columbia disasters.

A cluster of five stars symbolizes the shuttles: Atlantis, Discovery, Endeavour, Columbia and Challenger.
