By Mark Schlabach | Published Feb 02, 2019 04:59:59The last time NASA’s space shuttle Atlantis made an emergency landing, in October 2006, it was to be the last shuttle mission of its kind.
The Atlantis had already completed more than 4,300 missions and had completed more of its missions than any other shuttle ever.
Atlantis’ final mission, Atlantis 2, ended in a spectacular fire on its third day in orbit.
Atlantis 2 had flown to the International Space Station, where the astronauts were staying when it went down.
Atlantis 3 was a shuttle mission that was supposed to last a week.
But Atlantis 3 had a problem.
When the mission began, it had just started to burn up in orbit, which means the astronauts didn’t have enough fuel to get back to Earth.
Atlantis lost about 1,000 pounds of fuel on the mission and was only able to stay in orbit for about eight hours before it burned up.
Atlantis 1, the last of NASA’s Space Shuttle fleet, also burned up after its launch in 2004.
Atlantis was an iconic symbol of the space program.
Atlantis, the only shuttle mission to fly without a human onboard, was flown to and from the International Airport in Houston.
Atlantis had flown more than 17 million hours and returned more than 100 million pieces of technology.
NASA had a great time with Atlantis, as well as many other programs and programs that flew on the shuttle.
But it was Atlantis 2 that made NASA the largest and most famous space agency in the world.
Atlantis is the only one of its sort in existence, and it is still the only space shuttle mission ever to have been destroyed.
Atlantis came to life with a mission called Operation Atlantis, which had been planned for over a year.
But in early June 2007, after an extensive search, NASA finally found the wreckage of Atlantis.
Atlantis did have a human crew onboard when it landed on its fourth mission.
Atlantis crewmembers and the crew of Atlantis 2 were on board Atlantis 2 when the shuttle crashed.
Atlantis crashed while conducting a launch pad test on July 5, 2006.
Atlantis suffered the most serious loss of life in space history, as astronauts suffered from oxygen starvation.
In the days that followed, NASA’s search for debris was very intense.
In June of 2007, NASA had more than 200 people searching for debris, but the debris had not been found.
In late June of that year, NASA also found a Soviet-built rocket that had crashed in Siberia.
The rocket was a TU-154 rocket booster, which is one of the largest rockets built in the Soviet Union.
A TU is one that has been modified to use an engine of unknown origin.
NASA and the Soviet space agency were able to determine that the rocket had been carrying a prototype engine that could have been used to power a future booster.
The Soviets had been developing the engine for more than a decade, and the TU booster was the first stage of a rocket designed to fly on its own.
The TU rocket was used on Atlantis 1 and Atlantis 2.
It was also the first rocket to fly into orbit, and NASA wanted to make sure that this rocket was intact and operational when it was recovered.
Atlantis and the engines on the booster would be shipped to the United States for investigation and testing.
In addition to the rocket engines, the first two crew members to survive the crash were the Russians who had been the first to fly Atlantis into orbit.
The Russians were the first Russians to fly a spacecraft into orbit from a test site in the United Arab Emirates.
The two Russians were Sergey Titov and Oleg Popov.
Both were the third and fourth Russian crew members on Atlantis.
The engines aboard Atlantis 1 also had a history of safety issues.
In April of 2007 and again in June of 2008, the engines had to be tested in extreme conditions that would destroy the engines and cause significant damage to the spacecraft.
In September of 2008 the Russians, along with several other nations, signed a contract to build a new engine that would not require such extreme conditions.
This new engine would have a much higher thrust rating and a higher velocity than the one used on the first flight.
But when Atlantis landed on June 3, 2007, the new engine had a catastrophic failure.
A major part of the spacecraft’s electronics failed, resulting in the loss of communications with the International Segment, the space segment between the United Kingdom and Russia.
Atlantis would have been the last mission to be launched on an American rocket before the Space Shuttle Program was discontinued in 2011.
Atlantis launched from Edwards Air Force Base in California.
The first flight of Atlantis 1 was the same day Atlantis 2 took off from the Edwards Air Base, California, launching on June 7, 2006, on a Boeing 757.
Atlantis mission planners had been working for weeks to plan for Atlantis 1.
The plan called for the Atlantis spacecraft to launch on a 757 on a trajectory that would make it orbit the Earth about 9,500 miles (15,000 kilometers).
This orbit was
