CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (Reuters) - The space shuttle Endeavour blasted off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Monday on its final voyage which will deliver a pioneering physics experiment to the International Space Station.
Endeavour roared off the launch pad at 8:56 a.m. EDT, carrying a six-member crew.
The U.S. space agency NASA plans just one more shuttle mission this summer with sister ship Atlantis before ending the 30-year-old shuttle program.
