South Georgians have mixed feelings about Atlantis' last space shuttle launch.

Some people told us they're happy the program is coming to an end to save taxpayer money in tough economic times.

Others say they're disappointed the U.S. will have to rely on other countries to get our astronauts into space.

"I think it's a sad end to three decades of success. The space program has done so much for science and health science. This is the one program that the government can run right," said Randy Foster.

What do you think about the end of the shuttle program?
