Take a final tour of Shuttle Atlantis before they shut it down

The shuttle program is over, and the orbiters are being prepped for public display. Atlantis, the last shuttle to fly, will be on static display at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, but most of its interior will be removed to make it lighter.

The folks over at Collect Space got a rare opportunity to tour the inside of Atlantis before the power gets turned off for the final time, and they took some fantastic shots of what must have been the coolest place not on Earth to work.
