Atlantis space shuttle makes final landing
US space shuttle Atlantis has made its final landing, bringing to a close a 30-year orbiter programme.
The shuttle and its four man crew landed safely at Kennedy Space Centre with its wheels touching the runway just before local sunrise (0556 EDT; 0956 GMT; 1056 BST).
Footage provided by Nasa shows a pilot's view of the vehicle coming into land.
Moments after touchdown, shuttle commander Chris Ferguson announced the mission was "now complete" and that the shuttle had "found its place in history".
