Space shuttle Atlantis' payload bay opened for display

http://shuttles.collectspace.com/ When it was flying in orbit, space shuttle Atlantis' payload bay was opened to deploy probes to the planets, send satellites circling the Earth, and deliver the parts to assemble a space station.

Now that it's retired and being readied for museum display, the orbiter's cargo hold has been opened one last time not to launch something out, but to welcome the public to look inside.
