Endeavour on its Way to the Station

The space shuttle Endeavour blasted off from Florida's Cape Canaveral last night at 3:06am GMT.

The flawless launch was right on schedule, and in beautiful weather. During the 10-day STS-97 mission, the 5-astronaut crew will install the station's new $600m solar panels, containing a total of 64,000 photoelectric cells. The panels will provide enough electricity to power the three current modules, as well as the American laboratory, Destiny, which is due to be added in January.
