Endeavour lifted off from the launch pad at Kennedy Space  Center and into the clouds this morning. Later, Endeavour detached from the rocket and shot out into space. The shuttle crew is scheduled for a 16-day mission, which includes time on the International Space Station.

Endeavour is due to return to Earth from its final space voyage in the wee hours of June 1. Then Endeavour will be heading to the Southland to become part of an exhibit at the California Science Center in L.A.
