Retirement

April-November 2012

Each of the three Space Shuttles, Discovery (top),
Endeavour and Atlantis were retired in 2012.
Discovery is now on display at the Smithsonian
outside Washington, Endeavour at the California
Science Center in Los Angeles, and Atlantis right
here at Kennedy Space Center.

Extensive photo galleries cover the process of
retiring and getting the shuttles to their new homes.
