As noted by NASA, the Day 2 of Space Shuttle Atlantis’ final flight was started with a wake-up song “Viva la Vida” by Coldplay and greetings from a number of NASA employees.

“Good morning, Atlantis. The Marshall Space Flight Center hopes you enjoyed your ride to orbit. We wish you a successful mission and a safe return home.” The NASA workers said in a pre-recorded video message.

“Good morning, Marshall Space Flight Center. Thanks for that great message and awesome ride to orbit and the 134 before that with this tremendous space shuttle program.” Atlantis pilot Doug Hurley replied.

Pilot Hurley is being joined by Mission Specialists Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim and Atlantis Commander Chris Ferguson for the last mission of NASA’s Space Shuttle.

As of this writing, NASA said there has been no major problem after the Space Shuttle Atlantis launch last Friday, July 8 at around 11:26 a.m. (EDT), which is now on the second day of the 12-day mission.

NASA noted that Space Shuttle Atlantis is being expected to dock at International Space Station on Sunday, July 10 at 11:07 a.m. (EDT), and will deliver supplies as well as the Robotic Refueling Mission.
