Video: Watch The Last Space Shuttle Launch Ever

This morning hundreds of thousands of onlookers at Cape Canaveral, Florida gathered to watch what was likely the final lift off ever of a space shuttle-- ending NASA's historic 30-year program. Space Shuttle Atlantis, the 135th shuttle to take flight since the first in 1981, successfully breached the atmosphere on its way to a two week mission at the International Space Station.

If you weren't able to watch the memorable moment live, catch it in the above video care of NASA's Ustream. Lift-off occurs around the 18:00 mark.
