Endeavour successfully lifts off...

on its final mission early this morning.  More here.

Meanwhile, components for the next mission to Mars were delivered to Kennedy Space Center late last week for a late 2011 launch of the Mars Science Laboratory, also known as the Curiosity rover.

UPDATE and BUMPED:  This article contains one very serendipitous and cool image: Student Balloon Photographs Shuttle Endeavour's Launch Into Orbit.  And here's another fantastic shot of the launch taken by a passenger on a commercial flight.  Hat tip: the Bu bro.
