Shuttle Launch Rehearsed by Endeavour Crew The six-member crew of the next space shuttle mission participated in a full launch dress rehearsal, known as the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test on April 1 at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The test provided an opportunity for the crew and ground teams to participate in various simulated countdown activities, including equipment familiarization, emergency training and a simulated launch countdown. Endeavour is targeted to launch April 19 on its final scheduled flight. During its 14-day mission, Endeavour's astronauts will deliver to the International Space Station the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, a particle physics detector designed to search for various types of unusual matter by measuring cosmic rays. The crew also will deliver the Express Logistics Carrier 3, a platform that carries spare parts that will sustain station operations once the shuttles are retired later this year. Endeavour's crew members are Commander Mark Kelly, Pilot Greg Johnson, and mission specialists Mike Fincke, Greg Chamitoff, Drew Feustel, and European Space Agency astronaut Roberto Vittori.
Space Shuttle Endeavour STS-123 liftoff Shuttle Endeavour middle-of-the-night launch. It lit up the entire sky. The video recording was taken from the Banana river (a lagoon called "river" between Cape Canaveral and Merritt Island) 6 miles away from the Shuttle platform in a restricted area inside the Kennedy Space Center. There is only one other closer viewing place 5 miles away from the platform at the Apollo/Saturn V Center where the Japanese invitees were. An even closer place is the VAB but that is highly restricted. The STS-123 was the 25th. flight to the International Space Station (ISS) and will be delivering a Japanese module and the Canadian Dextre robot to the ISS.
Shuttle Endeavour Crew at KSC for Final Tests The six-member crew of the next space shuttle mission, STS-134, arrived at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla., on March 29, to participate in a full launch dress rehearsal, known as the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test, and related training. The test provides an opportunity for the crew and ground teams to participate in various simulated countdown activities, including equipment familiarization and emergency exit training. Endeavour's crew members are Commander Mark Kelly, Pilot Greg Johnson, and mission specialists Mike Fincke, Greg Chamitoff, Drew Feustel, and European Space Agency astronaut Roberto Vittori. Endeavour is targeted to launch April 19 on its final scheduled flight.
Cook's Endeavour Journal Cook's Endeavour Journal: The Inside Story brings to life the record of one of the world's most famous expeditions, the circumnavigation of the globe by Lieutenant James Cook aboard HMB Endeavour. It is a timeless story of courageous exploration-the charting of New Zealand and Australia's eastern seaboard-and of high adventure: a stand-off with a hostile Brazilian army and a near-shipwreck that almost brought the voyage to a premature end. The voyage of the Endeavour helped make sense of the eigh***th-century world.

Golden Gate Endeavour Food Drop Chris Martin and Mick Dawson aboard the state of the art rowing vessel "Bojangles" are in their final stage of rowing to the San Francisco Bay from Japan. We caught up with them in a helicopter just over 100 nautical miles off the coast of Northern California to make a food drop. You can follow Chris and Mick on "Bojangles" on their Golden Gate Endeavour at www.goldenga*** . They expect to arrive in the San Francisco Bay in the next week. The Boat The vessel specifically designed and constructed for this challenge is Bojangles. At 23ft long and 6ft wide, Bojangles is the most technically advanced ocean rowing vessel ever constructed. Manufactured from a Carbon-Kevlar composite woven material (by Woodvale Challenge), it is incredibly strong and durable, whilst at the same time being the lightest material suitable for the construction of an ocean going vessel. The woven construction increases the impact resistance threefold, while the method used to cure the resin ensures that the strength of the boat is not limited by the strength of its joints. In addition, renowned yacht designer John Shuttleworth was employed at the design stage to highlight and implement specific structural requirements for this vessel and her particular voyage, all of which have been incorporated into the final build.

Space Shuttle Atlantis Endeavour STS-118 08 August 2008 HD Video Courtesy NASA www.nasa.gov STS-118 was a space shuttle mission to the International Space Station (ISS) flown by Space Shuttle Endeavour. STS-118 successfully lifted off on August 8, 2007 from launch pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center (KSC), Florida and landed at the Shuttle Landing Facility at KSC on August 21, 2007. It was the first flight of Endeavour since the STS-113 mission in November 2002, which was the last successful Space Shuttle flight before the loss of Space Shuttle Columbia on STS-107. STS-118 pilot Charles Hobaugh had been the entry team CAPCOM for STS-107. Had the Columbia not disintegrated, it would have been chosen for this mission, which would have been its 29th mission, and probably its only mission to the ISS. The mission is also referred to as ISS-13A.1 by the ISS program. The mission added two more components to the International Space Station as well as bringing supplies for its crew. The completion of the mission left twelve flights remaining in the Space Shuttle program until its end in 2010, excluding two as-yet-unconfirmed Contingency Logistic Flights. During and after the mission, the media focused heavily on a small puncture in the heat shield, created by a piece of insulation foam that came off the external tank of Endeavour during liftoff. Foam impact was the cause of the destruction of Space Shuttle Columbia, but the extent of damage was very small in comparison and in a less critical area. KSC Launch Director Michael D. Leinbach ...
