"That was a picture-perfect end to a top-fuel mission to the Space Station. Everybody, welcome back to Earth, especially you, Nicole..."

Shuttle Commander Charlie Hobaugh (with help from Pilot Butch Wilmore) eased Atlantis through crystal-clear Florida skies, to a smooth landing at KSC's Runway 33 to end STS-129.
