Endeavour Flight

Constructed as a replacement following the Challenger loss, Endeavour was the youngest shuttle in the fleet. Named for the famous ship of British explorer Captain James Cook, Endeavour began flight operations in 1992 and enjoyed a long and distinguished career which included missions to service the Hubble Space Telescope, a rendezvous with the Russian space station Mir and assembly of the International Space Station. Her last mission was flown may 16, 2011 and she was retired. Endeavour will go on display at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

I remember the day Challenger exploded. I was in Germany at Rhein Main AB TDY. I was just driving through the gate on my way back to the transient quarters. The guard at the gate stopped me at told me what happened. I went back to the dorm and watched the replays in horror! What a sad day... Thank you for this great depiction!
