The Space Shuttle Endeavour blasts-off for the International Space Station at 2:41pm on April 19
2001. Carrying the most diverse crew to date with astronauts from the US, Russia, Italy, ,
Endeavour carried up one of the most imporant pieces of the station: the Remote Manipulator System
or RMS - the robotic arm that will be used for all future assembly tasks and spacewalks.
This was my first launch, but it took three tries. I also attended STS-93 and STS-101 (1999 & 2000)
