Posted: Mon, Feb 8, 2010, 6:12 AM ET (1112 GMT)
STS-130: launch (NASA/KSC) The space shuttle Endeavour lifted off early Monday on a mission to the International Space Station. Endeavour launched on schedule at 4:14 am EST (0914 GMT) after a routine countdown. Clouds that postponed Sunday's launch did reappear, but cleared before launch. The six-person crew will install the Tranquility module, the last major US component for the ISS, during the 13-day mission. Three spacewalks are planned during the mission to outfit the new module and perform other work.
