Endeavour lifts off..

our big brothers in science NASA have successfully launched the Space Shuttle Endeavour. Endeavour's on her way to the International Space Station from which the rebuilt Beagle's progress around the world will be photographed. All the best for your time up there chaps, and as the Yorkshire outpost of the Beagle Project, I get an extra little thrill of pride that NASA named one of their Shuttles after Captain James Cook's Whitby built Endeavour. The Autralian built replica seen here entering Whitby Harbour.

Podcast of the NHM Darwin trip coming up soon.
