NASA managers are meeting at Kennedy Space Center in Florida today to conduct the final Flight Readiness Review, which is expected to confirm space shuttle Atlantis' currently targeted launch date of July 8. For updates from the meeting, check www.twitter.com/nasa.

A few miles away, technicians at Launch Pad 39A will perform functional tests on the spacewalking suits the STS-135 crew will take on this final mission to the International Space Station. Also at the pad, the week-long process of closing Atlantis' aft section continues.
