America's Space Shuttle Endeavour docks with the International Space Station orbiting about 220 nautical miles above the earth. ATK Launch System's twin reusable solid rocket motors provide 80 percent of the thrust need during the initial two minutes of each Space Shuttle flight. The ISS program is the largest scientific cooperative effort in history, drawing on the resources and expertise of 16 nations.
