Final Flight of the Endeavour

We got the chance to say farewell to the space shuttle Endeavour, up close and personal, at the Kennedy Space Center on Sunday, September 16, 2012.  It is pictured below, prepared for its flight to Los Angeles tomorrow, ridding piggyback on one of NASA’s 747’s.  Astronaut Kay Hire, who flew the Endeavour in 2010 and is pictured below, was on hand for the photo opportunity.  The Endeavour was built to replace the Challenger, which was lost in an accident in 1986.
