First of four launches lifts off

Jul 14

SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket took to the skies with six ORBCOMM satellites July 14. It is the first of what could be as many as four launches in less than four weeks from the Cape, a rate not seen in a very long time.

Next up: Delta 4 the evening of July 28!

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.
