The Last Nighttime Launch Of The Space Shuttle

If there's something more spectacular than a space shuttle launch that's a night shuttle launch. Sadly, the last one happened tonight. Happily, it was filmed in perfect high definition. Endeavour carries another last too:

This is NASA's last module for the space station. Called Tranquility, the 6.4m long, 4.3m wide module will be facing Earth, connected to the Unity node. It will provide with an additional dock port for the space shuttle and other crew spacecrafts, as well as a work module called Cupola. Cupola will be a huge view port with seven windows, six on the sides and one on top.
