Endeavour Lifts Off From Cape

Space Shuttle Endeavour lifted off from Kennedy Space Center early Monday morning and is on its way toward the International Space Station on one of the shuttle program's last scheduled missions. Endeavour and its crew of six lit up the early morning sky as it blasted off, on time, at 4:14. The pre-dawn launch was the last one in darkness if the rest of the shuttle schedule holds. Only four more shuttle flights are left before the shuttle program ends. Endeavour is carrying a new room for the International Space Station and a cupola with an observation de The launch had been scheduled for early Sunday morning but cloudy weather postponed the lift-off. The shuttle is scheduled to reach the space station Wednesday and is expected to return to Cape Canaveral in 13 days. Listen here to WMFE's live coverage of the launch.
