The last mission of the Space “Shuttle” on the flight vehicle 33 of the “Atlantis” was to deliver more than 9,400 pounds in parts and other equipment along with 2.677 pounds of food and enough supplies for a year for researchers in different expeditions working in the International Space Station.

Any other space program in the world has been able to transport the amounts of materials to build or resources for human survival as it did in its 30 years of service.

Without falling importance of the previous Human Space Flight Missions, such as Mercury (1959-29630) Gemini (1963-1966) Apollo (1961-1972)  the first one to bring human life in the Universe and a walk on the moon, Skylab (1973-1974)  To build the first American Space Station, that countenances the STS “Shuttle” mission to enlarge and alliance that Space Station to the International one.

The Space System Transportation, STS also featured a great diversity of talented Scientist that include several women and from almost one of each country in the 30 years of function.Aside of the Astronauts well training by NASA; as Mission Commander, Pilot and Mission Specialist, the Shuttle Program opened a door for Payload Specialis.

A Payload Specialist was generally selected for a single specific mission and were chosen outside the standard NASA astronaut selection process  and 61 of them flew to the Space as part of the prestigious crew in the 135 launches, without being American Citizens, and some of the where from Mexico, South the Arabia and other Countries and professions like Congressmen, teacher and other not scientist profession.

Note, this program generate more interest in science to thousands of professionals around the world adn were selected by NASA  several Hispanics where in the orbirter more thatn one time and all fo them had an important contribution as Colonel Sidney M. Gutierrez (2 ª. Generation Mexico-American descent) who participated in 2 missions, Dr. Ellen Ochoa (2 ª. Generation Mexico-American descent) who participated in 4 missions in the STS Programs.

The brave crew who made history in the last flight was the Commander Christopher Ferguson, Co-Pilot Douglas Hurley, and Mission Specialists Rex Walheim and Sandra Mangus. They also carried during the last mission as a backup plan a small Russian Soyuz capsule in case Atlantis had some flaw in his return to Earth.

STS Atlantis last landing

The three orbiting spacecraft that made history in the Space Transportation Program Shuttle will be on display at the Visitor Complex for NASA, “Discovery” is the hangar of the Smithsonian in Virginia, “Endeavour” will be at the Science Center in Los Angeles California and “Atlantis” will be at home in the Visitor Center Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral Fl.  STS Was close but not the era of the Space exploration…

A Great and Productive Program
