HOUSTON (AP) – The space shuttle Endeavour took off atop a modified transport plane from Houston today on its journey to retirement in Southern California, where it will be put on permanent display in a museum.

Along the way, the shuttle will pass low over several cities and places, including Tucson, Ariz. That’s the home of the last person to command an Endeavour mission, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, and his wife, former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
