May 16, 2011 at 8:56 AM - Space Shuttle Endeavor STS-134 launches into orbit for the final time. I was very fortunate to be invited to attend this historic launch from the Banana Creek viewing area, 3 miles from the launch pad. My parents and my sister Michele attended with me. It was an experience we'll never forget. :) Thanks sooo much to Thomas Von Deak and Anabel Falcon of the Glenn Research Center for helping to make this possible!
