Space Shuttle Atlantis (OV-104) was delivered to NASA in April 1985 and lifted off on its maiden voyage on October 3, 1985 (STS-51J). Later missions included the launch of the Galileo probe to Jupiter on October 18, 1989 (STS-34), the Gamma Ray Observatory payload on April 5, 1991 (STS-37), the first shuttle docking to the Mir Space Station in June 1995 (STS-71) and the final Hubble Telescope service mission in May 2009 (STS-125). In May 2010 Atlantis was launched on a mission to deliver an Integrated Cargo Carrier and a Russian Mini Research Module to the International Space Station. The 33rd and final flight (STS-135) of Atlantis was launched on July 8, 2011. This historic flight was the 135th and final mission of NASAs Space Shuttle program.Opening payload bay doors

During its service life, Atlantis spent 306 days and 14 hours in space, made 4,848 orbits of the earth and traveled 125,935,769 miles. It deployed 14 satellites, made 19 dockings and carried 156 passengers during its 33 missions.
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.
Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
