If there's something more spectacular than a space shuttle launch that's a night shuttle launch. Sadly, the last one happened tonight. Happily, it was filmed in perfect high definition. Endeavour carries another last thing too:
This is NASA's last module for the space station. Called Tranquility, the 21-foot long, 14-foot wide module will be facing Earth, connected to the Unity node. It will provide with an additional dock port for the space shuttle—soon to be canned—and other crew spacecrafts. It will also bring one of the most entertaining features for astronauts, who spend 90% of their free time looking at Earth: Tranquility includes an attachment called Cupola, a huge view port with seven windows, six on the sides and one on top.
