Space Shuttle Endeavour In Orbit
"A smooth climb to orbit" is how NASA described the successful launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour on mission STS-118 late this afternoon.
The spacecraft, along with her crew of seven astronauts and mission specialists, is on the way to the International Space Station (ISS) with a full agenda of assembly tasks and payload of cargo for the orbiting outpost.
Former "Teacher in Space" Barbara Morgan is part of the crew with a new designation of Mission Specialist.
