When I headed out on the third of three night shifts last evening, the weather in Florida seemed uncertain and there were reports of delaying space shuttle Endeavour's landing or relocating it to California. Things improved, though, and while I don't have enough online access at work to have watched the streaming coverage I was able to hear in the middle of the night that Endeavour landed, the window module it had carried now installed up in orbit. One of the updates I was following via the RSS feed mentioned that the space station is "98 percent complete by volume"; I sort of wonder what that last two percent is going to be. However, there's still ten percent of the station's mass left to be carried up; the four missions left scheduled are supposed to be carrying a lot of spare parts.
