Launch of Space Shuttle Endeavor. Second to last shuttle flight planned

Glad that Congresswoman Giffords is recovering enough to watch the launch and President Obama will be there, but the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer is the most exciting payload on board. Looking for anti matter, dark matter and other strange physics from the vantage point of space. May bring some interesting knowledge.

After a delay (normal with shuttle) Launch Monday AM. Now docked with space station and delivering AMS. AMS is, in my opinion, the most interesting research at the space station.
