With great gusto, Endeavour took off this evening after waiting patiently for several weeks. Originally scheduled for June 13th, STS127 had to wait out a repair and several weather scrubs before making it to orbit tonite. I know the crew is happy, and the launch support teams are pleased to not have to re-schedule their lives (again) to try yet again… It is quite an effort each attempt, but well worth it.

Thanks everyone for the support and well wishes.
Safe journey and return…
