CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Space shuttle Atlantis isn't going far to its retirement home. Early Friday it will move just 10 miles to Kennedy Space Center's main tourist stop to be put on display.
Atlantis was the last shuttle to orbit Earth and it's the last of the three surviving space shuttles to be moved to retirement exhibits. It will go on display next summer at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
Atlantis' move signals the loss of jobs for hundreds of remaining space shuttle workers at Cape Canaveral over the next few months.
