Robo’s space journey!
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
April 01, 2008

American space shuttle Endeavour returned to earth after successfully completing a 16-day space journey and planting the Canadian Space Agency’s robotic system, named Dextre. The crew also accomplished the installation of the first section of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Kibo Laboratory.


Declared as the longest ever space mission of Endeavor, this flight also had a record five spacewalks. Space shuttles Endeavor and Discovery are being planned to be relieved off their services in two years time and hence scientists are scheduling for the completion of setting up the Kibo Laboratory before that. Shuttle Discovery’s flight to the space is planned for May 2008.

Japan will control the Kibo module from its center near Tokyo with support crews working from various parts of the globe including USA, Russia, and Germany supervising the installation from earth.

Endeavour made a landing at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Fla, after spending 6.6 million miles in space.
