30 - 11 May 2009 - STS-125 - 39A - Edwards AFB - 12 days, 21 hours, 37 minutes, 9 seconds - 5,276,000 miles (8,491,000 km) - Final Hubble Space Telescope Servicing Mission 4. Atlantis carried two new instruments to the Hubble Space Telescope, the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph and the Wide Field Camera 3. The mission also replaced a Fine Guidance Sensor, six gyroscopes, and two battery unit modules. The mission included five spacewalks totaling 37 hours. STS-125 carried an IMAX camera to document the progress of the mission.
31 - 16 November 2009 - STS-129 - 39A - KSC - 10 days, 19 hours, 16 minutes, 13 seconds - 4,490,138 miles (7,226,177 km) - International Space Station resupply and construction (ELC-1/ELC-2). STS-129 was the first flight of an ExPRESS Logistics Carrier and focused on staging spare components outside the space station. The mission included three spacewalks.
32 - 14 May 2010 - STS-132 - 39A - KSC - 11 days, 18 hours, 29 minutes, 09 seconds - 4,879,978 miles (7,853,563 km) - International Space Station construction (Mini-Research Module 1 and the cargo pallet, Integrated Cargo Carrier-Vertical Light Deployable (ICC-VLD)). The mission included three spacewalks.
33 - 8 July 2011 - STS-135 - 39A - KSC - 12 days, 18 hours, 28 minutes, 50 seconds - 5,284,862 miles (8,505,161 km) - International Space Station resupply using the Raffaello Multi-Purpose Logistics Module and the Lightweight Multi-Purpose Carrier (LMC). The failed ammonia pump module that was replaced in August 2010 returned inside Atlantis' payload bay. This was the final mission of Space Shuttle Atlantis and the last mission for the Space Shuttle Program. STS-135 flew with a crew of 4 astronauts; the reduced crew size allowed for rescue by regularly scheduled Soyuz missions if necessary.
