Photos from space shuttle Endeavour's last voyage

 "NASA released photos of its space shuttle Endeavour's recent mission. It undocked from the space station for the final time last night.
The Endeavour shuttle left the International Space Station at 11:55 p.m. EDT Sunday, 'ending a stay of 11 days, 17 hours and 41 minutes at the orbiting laboratory,' NASA said on its website.
Endeavour flew around the station at about 450 to 650 feet, and crew members snapped videos and photos of the station. NASA released the photos today, offering them for public use.
The Endeavour plans to spend another two days in orbit and then it will land at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on June 1."

I’ve followed the shuttle since its inaugural flight and it’s a pity its being put out of action. Feel that it could have been able to continue in some way, since so many funds and lives have been changed by it. Remember those first photos from the Hubble, WOW!
