Atlantis Orbiter To Be Retired by 2008

NASA says the Atlantis orbiter will be retired by mid-2008.

Afterward the craft will be used as a parts donor to the Endeavour and Discovery, which will be flying the remaining shuttle missions consisting of 16 to 18 ISS missions and one Hubble service mission.

The plan from NASA at this point is for entire shuttle fleet to be retired in September 2010.
