The shuttle has landed but you can have a look at it

ALTHOUGH America’s space shuttle programme came to an end in July, groups can still visit the retired Atlantis shuttle at its final resting place, Florida’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC).

KSC offers three tours that allow groups to explore NASA’s launch headquarters, covering an area that also includes launch pads, rockets, history-making technology and parts of the adjacent wildlife refuge.
The general ‘Kennedy Space Center’ tour, included in the price of entry to KSC, takes visitors to a 60-foot Launch Complex Observation Gantry, providing a 360-degree view of two giant shuttle launch pads, as well as the Apollo/Saturn V Center, from which the original moon landing launched.
Meanwhile, the ‘Discover KSC: Today & Tomorrow’ tour allows guests to access a viewing site close to the launch pads, from which they can take photos, and the ‘Cape Canaveral: Then & Now’ tour gives an opportunity to relive the launch of America’s first satellite at the Air Force Space & Missile Museum and gain an insight into today’s activities.
Groups of 15 or more can plan a tour by calling the spaceport’s reservations centre.
