Editor's Notes:  As glorious as it is, the image of the Space Shuttle launching has been with us long enough to feel routine; that's precisely why this footage, of the Shuttle Atlantis coming in for a landing is so mesmerizing and majestic. Featuring footage of a mission-ending landing shot not only from the ground but from inside the Shuttle Atlantis itself, it's a thrilling glimpse inside the complex and dangerous process of bringing a 151,000-pound craft back from orbit and down to the ground safely.  Synopsis: Space Shuttle Atlantis returns to earth after a 12 day mission to the International Space Station. Flight Engineer Suni Williams, who has been at the station since December 2006, is on board. Live Coverage from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
