Thirty-One Amazing Pictures Of Endeavour

January 30, 2009

Truly amazing pictures.  If you love NASA and space, you will need to see these pictures.

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.
