*Atlantis Launches!*
After a virtually flawless countdown, Space Shuttle Atlantis thundered 
into the early evening sky over Florida's Kennedy Space Center. The 
on-time launch headed the STS-117 crew toward the International Space 
Station where they will deliver a new crew member, truss segment and 
solar arrays.
