On Friday September 21, 2012, I watched the Space Orbiter Endeavour pass by as she flew riding piggyback on a 747 jumbo jet on her final flight touring The State of California. It was an exciting moment seeing her again. The first time was 21 years ago on April 25, 1991 at her debut "The Spirit of Endeavour Orbiter 105 Roll-Out" Ceremonies.

Thank you Endeavour for your many flawless flights, bringing science to new heights, and keeping your passengers safely tucked under your wings throughout; you've made your big sister Challenger very proud.

It is imperative that I visit Endeavour at the California Science Center in Los Angeles in order to come full circle with her active service duty and into retirement years ending her space journeys. And, to welcome her back home. Endeavour will always be very special to me.
