NATIONAL (FOX4$) - Nasa's shuttle program has ended, but officials say it's not the end of its space program.

The Director of the Kennedy Space Center, Bob Cabana says,
"We are going to focus on the launch site, and what we need to do here to make the facilities here a multi user space port to enable commercial space, and to get us that big rocket that allows us to go exploring as we move beyond our home planet."

Officials say their next goal is to put humans on Mars.

Atlantis landed safely at Kennedy Space Center on the morning of July 21st, bringing the 30 year shuttle program to a close.
