Atlantis was the fourth orbiter to become operational at the Kennedy Space Center. It was named after the primary research vessel for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts from 1930 to 1966. The two-masted 460- ton ketch was the first U.S. vessel to be used for oceanographic research. The research was considered to be one of the last bastions of the sailing vessel as steam-and-diesel-powered vessels dominated the waterways. The spaceship Atlantis has carried on the spirit of the sailing vessel with several important voyages including the Galileo planetary explorer mission in 1989 and the deployment of the Arthur Holley Compton Gamma Ray Observatory in 1991. In 1995 Atlantis made seven straight flights to the Russian space station Mir. On the second Mir flight it delivered a docking module and it conducted astronaut exchanges on the subsequent flights. From November 1997 to July 1999 Atlantis underwent refitting operations with about 165 modifications made to the shuttle including the installation of the Multifunction Electronic Display System or glass cockpit. Since then it has made six flights all involving assembly activities at the International Space Station. NASA scheduled the 27th launch for Atlantis on September 2005 from September 9 - 24. It was ruled unsafe to fly the mission and the launch window was missed due to the complications during Discovery s launch of mission STS- 114 and NASA s subsequent suspension of all future shuttle launches. Atlantis was the designated STS-300 rescue orbiter for the STS-114 mission. Atlantis was scheduled to fly the STS-121 mission but it was decided that Discovery would fly the mission instead. After a four-year-halt Atlantis went back into orbit along with six astronauts on STS-115 carrying the P3/P4 truss segments and solar arrays. Atlantis launched its longest mission STS-117 on June 8 2007 almost 14 days. Span: 9.25 . Length: 14.5 .
