Today’s Question: On this day, 2 years ago, STS-135 was completed and thus so came to an end the NASA Space Shuttle Program.

Due to the US’s failed attempt at their own space station and the evolution of the International Space Station, the shuttle program ran nearly twice as long as initially expected. Which Shuttle was the last to blast off and return from space? http://ift.tt/1yVHzNA
