Atlantis space shuttle being rolled out towards its launch site at the Kennedy Space Centre, Florida, USA, on 10th November 2007. The STS-122 mission was due to launch on 6th December 2007, but a faulty engine cutoff sensor meant that it was postponed until 7th February 2008. Mission STS-122 was to install the European Space Agency's Columbus laboratory, which hosts experiments on weightlessness and its effects, onto the International Space Station (ISS). Atlantis returned to Earth on 20th February 2008.
