Farewell Shuttle Atlantis July 10
The space shuttle Atlantis is back home after 13 days in space as NASA's final shuttle mission comes to a close.
To commemorate the historic event, we're taking a look at some of the spectacular images of our home planet that the astronauts took from Atlantis and the International Space Station during their stay.
This image is a nadir view of the space shuttle Atlantis and its payload was provided by one of a series of images showing various parts of the shuttle in Earth orbit.
