1st Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
High above looking down in the VAB Atlantis can be seen prior to rollout for STS-135. This will be the final space shuttle launch.

"It was no easy task for me to gain access to this location on the crane at the top of the Vehicle Assembly Building," says Wise. "It took numerous emails and phone calls over months. This photograph was taken just hours prior to rollout to the launch pad for the final space shuttle flight and the end of an era."
