Atlantis, NASA's fourth operational space shuttle, was named after the two-masted sailing ship RV Atlantis, which served as the primary research vessel for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute from 1930 to 1966.
The Space Shuttle program started with the awarding of a contract to Rockwell International's Space Transportation Systems Division. There were 6 shuttles built, Enterprise OV-101 (Orbital Vehicle) for testing, Columbia OV-102, Challenger OV-099, Discovery OV-103, Atlantis OV-104 and Endeavour OV-105. The first of 135 Space Shuttle missions took place April 12, 1981 and lasted 2 days 6 hours when STS-1 (Space Transportation System) was launched using Space Shuttle Columbia. Of the 135 mission launches there were 2 tragedies when Columbia and Challenger plus their crews were lost.
