Our Last Endeavor

On April 29th, the space shuttle Endeavor is expected to make its 25th and final flight.  Endeavor is the youngest in the fleet of shuttles.  It is a member of a program that has gone through hardship, and yet at the same time has kept the flame flickering for America’s space program.  This picture is a grand tribute to the glorious ride this program has offered us over the years.  The shot was taken over 400 feet in the air in the Kennedy Space Center vehicle assembly building.

The photograph itself is absolutely stunning.  I would urge all of you to check out the website of the photographer, Ben Cooper.  His attention to detail has certainly been nothing short of spectacular.

Here’s to you Endeavor…fly true, and make your last journey a safe, and productive one.
