(AP)—Space shuttle Atlantis isn't going far to its retirement home. Early Friday, it will move just 10 miles (16 kilometers) to Kennedy Space Center's main tourist stop to be put on display in Florida.
Atlantis was the last shuttle to orbit Earth, and it's the last of the three surviving space shuttles to be moved to retirement exhibits. It will go on display next summer.
Atlantis' move signals the loss of jobs for hundreds of space shuttle workers at Cape Canaveral over the next few months.
