Endeavour launches, and Bolden on “the future of human spaceflight”

Delayed by the weather on Sunday, the Space Shuttle Endeavour successfully launched this morning on the final scheduled night flight of the soon to be retired Nasa shuttles. Mission STS-130 will deliver a third connecting module – the Tranquility node – to the International Space Station as well as “a room with a view”. And possibly some decking… The BBC’s Spaceman blog has more on the cupola, and provides a post, with video links, of “Nasa chief Charlie Bolden holding forth on the future of human spaceflight.” Endeavour launch video from NASAtelevision.
