The space shuttle Atlantis blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Friday on NASA's third-to-last shuttle mission to the International Space Station.

Atlantis roared off the launch pad at 2:20 p.m. (1820 GMT), carrying six astronauts on a trip to deliver a Russian research and docking module to the space station. NASA plans to end the shuttle program later this year after Atlantis' sister ships Discovery and Endeavour make their final flights.
