nature loves her little surprises.

Endeavour is Coming Home

As I write, Endeavour is just entering the atmosphere. She's somewhere over Australia at the moment. (go to NASA TV link)

Come home safe, Endeavour.

12:19pm Com Blackout (ratty com) Atmospheric controls, Endeavour is over Costa Rica.
12:23pm Out of ratty com, over southern Florida
12:27pm First camera view, looks pretty
12:30 WTF was that! Oh, sonic boom. Never mind.
12:33 Showing nose cam data, Kewl! (inner geek squee!)
12:34 Nose gear down. Welcome home Endeavour!
12:37 Stopped and venting, ground vehicles are inspecting. You know, Direct TV offers NASA TV. There's another +5 for switching from my local cable.

They had the launch on the HD channel. It was awesome. I did not know the teacher was the back up for 1986. Awesome she made it! Poor thing is still dizzy from being weightless for 13 days.
