Statement from Governor Rick Scott Regarding Space Shuttle Atlantis Retirement

4/14/2011 Tallahassee, Fla. – Governor Rick Scott today released the following statement regarding the retirement of Space Shuttle Atlantis.

“I applaud NASA for deciding that Kennedy Space Center will be the permanent home for Space Shuttle Atlantis after the ship retires later this year. Thanks to the efforts of Congressman Bill Posey and the entire Florida Congressional Delegation, the Atlantis will remain a permanent fixture on Florida’s Space Coast. Atlantis is an important part of the state’s heritage and it is only fitting that its final home be here in Florida.”
