Mars Chocolate North America's M&M'S Brand is commemorating the final mission of Space Shuttle Atlantis by providing personalized M&M'S for the crew, as well as NASA personnel at both launch control Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral and mission control at Johnson Space Center in Houston.

M&M'S have been a part of every space shuttle mission since Columbia first launched on April 12, 1981. They are included in NASA's space food system, as well as featured on the International Space Station (ISS) menu.

"We've been honored to fly on more than 130 missions with hundreds of American heroes over the last three decades," says Debra A. Sandler, chief consumer officer, Mars Chocolate North America. "It's bittersweet to see this program, which has inspired millions to reach for the stars, come to an end, but we wish the crew of Atlantis a safe and successful mission."

The commemorative M&M'S feature NASA colors (red, silver and blue) and includes the launch date and a space shuttle graphic. In addition, the four astronauts scheduled to serve on the final mission of Space Shuttle Atlantis will receive personalized M&M'S with their names on them.
