For more than thirty years, the space shuttle program carried some of America’s bravest adventurers into the great unknown of space. 135 missions allowed more than 350 people to temporarily escape Earth’s gravity. Photographer Dan Winters was there for the final three missions, Discovery, Endeavour and Atlantis, one of a few select photographers NASA allowed to photograph at close range the launches and the shuttle facilities.
