Shuttle Endeavour

Space shuttle Endeavour is carried on one of NASA’s modified Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft on a ferry flight back to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida after its last landing at Edwards Air Force Base in November 2008.


Atlantis Screen Grabs

I took some screen grabs of the Atlantis launch broadcast today.  Still got goosebumps as always, but they were mixed with a little sadness this time with the knowledge that this was the final space shuttle launch.  Good luck Atlantis and return safely.

Reach for Stars, Endeavour!!


NASA gave the space shuttle Endeavour and its STS-134 crew the “go for launch” on the morning of Monday, May 16, 2011. The 25th mission of Endeavour will be its last, and the next-to-last mission for the American space shuttle fleet.
