As Endeavour prepares to make the journey from Kennedy Space Center to its new home in California, we’re taking a look back at the shuttle, its rich history and major milestones.
Space shuttle Endeavour lifts off during its first flight in 1992. The spacecraft was built as a replacement for Challenger in the wake of the 1986 tragedy.
The beginning of the Space Shuttle Endeavour was probably the most important mission and achievement of mankind. The mere objective of being able to fly far beyond the atmosphere of the Earth had now inspired more people to reach the stars. - Jeffrey Nimer
