Atlantis Docks at Space Station

Two days after takeoff, the Atlantis Shuttle docked for the last time on Sunday at the International Space Station, where it will spend a week before retiring with the rest of NASA's spaceplane fleet. The shuttle pilots will perform traditional maneuvers so residents of the station can take pictures of its underbelly, which will then be sent to ground officials looking for any damages resulting from the shuttle's launch on Friday. Its crew will drop off large quantities of food and other supplies to sustain the ISS for roughly a year. It is scheduled to return to earth on July 20 and will eventually be displayed to the public at the Kennedy Space Center.
