Atlantis Space Shuttle Launch Successful

Another great event yesterday, November 16 as the Atlantis Space Shuttle had a successful launch from Pad 39A Smileys at the Kennedy Space Center at exactly 2:28 PM Eastern Time.

Atlantis carried six crew on an eleven day mission, designated STS 129, which they carry equipment parts for the International Space Station. Those parts include two spare gyroscopes, two nitrogen tank assemblies, two pump modules, an ammonia tank assembly and a spare latching end effector for the station’s robotic arm to the International Space Station. Atlantis will be back two days after they’ve launched.
