STS-134: landing (NASA/KSC) The space shuttle Endeavour landed at the Kennedy Space Center early Wednesday, completing its final mission and the next-to-last flight of the shuttle program overall. Endeavour landed at the Shuttle Landing Facility at KSC at 2:34 am EDT (0634 GMT) Wednesday on the first available landing opportunity, ending a nearly 16-day mission to the International Space Station. During the STS-134 mission the six-man crew installed a physics experiment, the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer 2, on the station, as well as ferried supplies for the station. The crew also performed four spacewalks during the mission to perform station maintenance. Endeavour will be retired after this flight, to be eventually located at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. The final shuttle mission, the launch of Atlantis on mission STS-135, is set for July 8.
