Unread Thursday, Jan 22nd 2009, 10:49 AM #1 Thumbs up Round trip with Endeavour (Space Shuttle)
NASA's space shuttle Endeavour recently returned to the Orbiter Processing Facility (OPF) at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, after its successful mission to the International Space Station. The shuttle, being a reusable spacecraft, has a cycle of preparation, execution and recovery - Endeavour has been through this cycle 22 times now, since 1992. Here is a look at one full cycle for one space shuttle, starting with the landing of Endeavour from its previous mission (STS-123) on March 26th, and ending with its return to Florida 9 months (and 6.6 million miles) later, after mission STS-126. (31 photos total)

I was lucky enough to see STS-126 in person.

It's a remarkable experience. You don't really get a sense of the scale of this work until you witness it first hand.






do less with more.
