Motivational Monday - Mission STS 134: Space Shuttle Endeavor's Last Launch

An estimated 500,000 people descended on Florida's Space Coast to view the perfect final launch of the Space Shuttle Endeavor today. After a 2 week delay, Mission STS 134 roared skyward at 8:56:26 AM on 5/16/2011. I didn't want to brave the traffic, so I opened my front door (about 20 miles away) and took this photo with a 300mm lens on my Nikon D90. It isn't perfect but you get the idea :-) All the best to the Astronauts - Come home safe! My Previous Post about the Scrubbed Launch.

Endeavor's last launch. The primary payload is the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer and ELC-3. Mission duration: 16 days. If you need to be motivated, just watch a shuttle/rocket launch and feel the thunderous power surging into space. Photo credit: NASA
