On its sixth try, the Space Shuttle Endeavour roars into space on mission STS-127 on July 15 at 6:03pm EDT. Endeavour delivered the third
and final section of the Japanese Kibo module, the exterior science experiment platform. One more scrub would have tied an all-time record!
Also onboard STS-127 was the 500th human to cross the 100km plateau into space.
