NASA's space shuttle Endeavour, which took off on its final mission, will make history on Wednesday morning when it completes its last landing ever.
NASA has just one shuttle flight remaining following the completion of Endeavour's mission--Atlantis, which is to bring supplies to the International Space Station, will launch sometime in July.
NASA wrote on the Endeavour mission page, "Checks of the flight control, reaction control and communications systems have been performed and the crew worked on cabin activities including stowagage of the Ku-Band antenna, used for high-data rate communications and television from space. Weather for the first landing opportunity at Kennedy continues to look favorable."
