STS135-S-036 (8 July 2011) —- Members of the media and employees gather  near the countdown clock to see the launch of space shuttle Atlantis as  it lifts off Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida  at 11:29 a.m. (EDT) on July 8, 2011. Onboard are NASA astronauts Chris  Ferguson, STS-135 commander; Doug Hurley, pilot; Sandy Magnus and Rex  Walheim, both mission specialists. STS-135 will deliver the Raffaello  multi-purpose logistics module packed with supplies and spare parts for  the International Space Station. Atlantis also will fly the Robotic  Refueling Mission experiment that will investigate the potential for  robotically refueling existing satellites in orbit. In addition,  Atlantis will return with a failed ammonia pump module to help NASA  better understand the failure mechanism and improve pump designs for  future systems. STS-135 will be the 33rd flight of Atlantis, the 37th  shuttle mission to the space station, and the 135th and final mission of  NASA’s Space Shuttle Program. Photo credit: NASA
