Shuttle Atlantis makes special delivery to space station

The final four on board the shuttle Atlantis docked with the International Space Station Sunday afternoon and received a warm welcome from Westchester astronaut Ron Garan.

The crew got to work immediately, delivering a year's worth of supplies to the outpost.

If all goes as planned, in nine days Atlantis will make its return back to earth for the final time, signaling the end of America's 30-year manned shuttle program.
