Atlantis made its first flight in October 1985, conducting classified military tests. In 1989, it deployed two planetary probes, Magellan and Galileo, and in 1991, it deployed the Arthur Holley Compton Gamma Ray Observatory.
Atlantis made seven straight flights to the Russian space station Mir starting in 1995. In October 2002, after a four-year hiatus, the space shuttle and its six-person crew completed the eleven-day STS-115 mission to the International Space Station (ISS) including three space walks. On June 8, 2007, Atlantis launched on its longest-ever mission, STS-117, which lasted almost 14 days. The spaceship will be retiring in 2010 after it completes STS-131. Its last mission will be carrying the Docking Cargo Module to the ISS.
