Atlantis Lands At KSC

Space Shuttle Atlantis rolled to a gentle stop on Runway 15 at Kennedy Space Center's Shuttle Landing Facility in Florida after a 9:07 a.m. EST touchdown that brings to a close mission STS-122. The landing support convoy is conducting the post-landing "safing" of the vehicle. This convoy consists of about 25 specially designed vehicles or units and a team of about 150 trained personnel who also assist the crew in leaving the orbiter, as well as prepare and tow the vehicle to the Orbiter Processing Facility. . -Source NASA
