Dragon DRW56186 NASA Space Shuttle Endeavour with Landing Gear - Last Mission STS-134 (1:400 Scale) "The Shuttle is to space flight what Lindbergh was to commercial aviation."
- Renkowned science fiction writer, Arthur C. Clarke

Space Shuttle Endeavour (Orbiter Vehicle Designation: OV-105) is one of three currently operational orbiters in the Space Shuttle fleet of NASA, the space agency of the United States. (The other two are Discovery and Atlantis.) Endeavour is the fifth and final spaceworthy NASA space shuttle to be built, constructed as a replacement for Challenger. Endeavour first flew in May 1992 on mission STS-49 and is scheduled for decommissioning in 2010. Before its decommissioning, NASA expects to use Endeavour for the STS-134 mission, and the last shuttle to fly for the last mission of the Space Shuttle Program.

STS-134 (ISS assembly flight ULF6) is the 134th and final planned mission of the Space Shuttle Program (which began service on April 12, 1981). This flight will deliver the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer and the third ExPRESS Logistics Carrier to the International Space Station. Special Order!

Historical Account: "Final Endeavor" - STS-134 (ISS assembly flight ULF6)[4] is the 134th and final planned mission of the Space Shuttle Program (which began service on April 12th, 1981). This flight will deliver the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer and the third ExPRESS Logistics Carrier to the International Space Station. The mission marks the final flight of Space Shuttle Endeavour.

Endeavour's liftoff has been delayed until mid November 2010 at the earliest. This is due to the ongoing design changes in AMS-02. The experiment leader, Samuel Ting, has decided to replace the powerful superconducting magnet inside the spectrometer with an ordinary magnet.
