Space Shuttle Atlantis Full Stack 1:200 Model
Space Shuttle Atlantis
lifted off on its maiden voyage on October 3, 1985, on mission STS-51-J
, the second dedicated Department of Defense flight. It flew one other mission, STS-61-B
, the second night launch in the shuttle program. Beginning in 1995 with STS-71
, Atlantis made seven straight flights to the former Russian space station Mir as part of the Shuttle-Mir Program. STS-71
marked a number of historic firsts in human spaceflight: 100th U.S. manned space flight; first U.S. Shuttle-Russian Space Station Mir docking and joint on-orbit operations; and first on-orbit changeout of shuttle crew. When linked, Atlantis and Mir together formed the largest spacecraft in orbit at the time.
