Early this morning the space shuttle Atlantis lifted off from NASA’s spaceport in Cape Canavarel, Florida for the last time.  This ending a 30-year era of space flight. Check out the video from MSNBC covering this mornings press conference on the next page.

The four crew members are headed to the international space station with enough supplies to last the space station crew until the end of 2012. The mission is set to last 12 days.

This final mission is the 33rd time Atlantis has made a trip to space, making a total of 135 missions between all shuttle fleets.

The lift off was nothing less than emotional for the thousands of guest that gathered at the Kennedy Space Center to watch.
