In just a moment, a 1.7 billion dollar space shuttle will appear behind me. That's kinda cool. I think I have the best job in the world. On Monday of this week, the first last was the last flight of the space shuttle Endeavour. 6 ... 5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... 0 And liftoff, for the final launch of Endeavour! Expanding our knowledge, expanding our lives in space. "Houston, Endeavour - roll program!" "Roger roll, Endeavour." Now Tuesday, May 17th, the final rollover of the space shuttle Atlantis from its orbiter processing facility to the vehicle assembly building (VAB). This is in preparation for the last flight of the space shuttle program EVER! This is your LAST CHANCE to actually see a space shuttle launch - STS-135. If you can, find a way to make it down here, to the Kennedy Space Center! Find a way to watch this launch. This is going to be a launch of epic proportions. There are going to be tons of people here and it is going to be exciting! This is the last time it is ever going to go from that building to this building. This is the last time, they're ever going to make the space shuttle Atlantis go from a horizontal to a vertical position and this is the last chance you have to watch the space shuttle make history in the making! Alright, one last thing in closing: come down, watch the final launch of space shuttle Atlantis, that'd be awesome. And drive an hour up to Disney World and go to Hollywood Studios where they've reopened Star Tours as of May 20th. That's really cool because there are 50 variations of this ride and you can go on it over and over and over again. Then, right before dinner, head on over to Epcot, get into their Mission: Space ride where you can kind of experience what it would sort of be like to be on an orbiter and then go to dinner someplace awesome like Nine Dragons. I promise you it is going to be a day that is a LOT of fun!
