Space Shuttle Endeavour’s Final Landing [Video]
Early this morning, Space Shuttle Endeavour completed its final flight, thus ending NASA’s second-to-last shuttle mission. Atlantis‘ final flight next month will be the last of the STS missions, thus ending the 30-year Space Shuttle program.
Endeavour has had quite a history:
Endeavour landed at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center after 248 orbits around Earth and a journey of 6,510,221 miles. The STS-134 mission was the 25th and final flight for Endeavour, which spent a total of 299 days in space, orbited Earth 4,671 times and traveled 122,883,151 miles.
NASA is wasting no time: Atlantis is already at the launch pad, preparing for its targeted July 8 launch.
