CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Forecasters say there's a 70 percent chance the weather will cooperate for today's final launch of space shuttle Atlantis.
Fueling began early this morning for the journey to the International Space Station. Launch time is 2:20 p.m., Eastern time.
Atlantis is set to take six astronauts and a load of supplies to the International Space Station.
The 12-day mission is the last one for Atlantis. Only two other flights remain by NASA's two other shuttles, before they're all retired.
Atlantis rocketed into orbit for the first time in 1985. This will be its 32nd trip.
