Illustrated Inventory: STS-135/Atlantis Official Flight Kit (OFK)

July 6, 2011 — For 30 years, the space shuttle has launched satellites, planetary probes, astronomical observatories, space station parts and... souvenirs. Packed aboard every orbiter, from STS-1 in 1981 onwards, has been an Official Flight Kit, or OFK, filled with flags, patches, medallions, pins and other trinkets to say thank you to the space program workers and others that made each mission a success.

The final space shuttle mission, STS-135, is no different. Thousands of souvenirs were packed aboard space shuttle Atlantis for the four million mile journey to the International Space Station and back.

collectSPACE obtained and illustrated the STS-135 Official Flight Kit's inventory, as presented below. Where possible, photos of the actual items have been added.
