STS-135 Final Shuttle Crew Honors Flight Control Teams


In Mission Control at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, the STS-135 crew that completed the final space shuttle mission aboard Atlantis paid tribute to the flight control teams that supervised their 13-day mission in a plaque-hanging ceremony on July 26, 2011. Commander Chris Ferguson, Pilot Doug Hurley and Mission Specialists Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim participated in the traditional ceremony in the International Space Station flight control room, then, for the last time, in the Space Shuttle flight control room. The plaque-hanging was overseen by the mission’s lead ISS Flight Director Chris Edelen and the mission’s lead Shuttle Flight Director, Kwatsi Alibaruho.
