The space shuttle Endeavour recently completed a roundtrip 16-day, 6.5-million mile journey to the International Space Station. The primary purpose of the mission was to ferry and then install the Japanese Exposed Facility installation to the Kibo (which means "peace" in Japanese) laboratory module of the station. The Endeavour crew needed five spacewalks to install the outdoor platform and to perform other duties upgrading the station. The mission was the second longest in shuttle history, and along the way the crews of both Endeavour and the International Space Station captured some spectacular images from space. Following is eWEEK's review of the NASA's July mission. By Roy Mark
