    The last space shuttle mission has touched down at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.

    Atlantis landed at Cape Canaveral, bringing four crew members back from the International Space Station.

    It brings the curtain down on 30 years of hard work for the space shuttle programme.

    Al Jazeera's Scott Heidler discusses the economic impact of the curtain close on the site's residents, from Florida.
