The Space Shuttle Endeavour has landed safely, bringing to a successful conclusion the long-awaited mission to space by an American school teacher, along with completing the mission’s scheduled work on the International Space Station. McCall teacher-astronaut Barbara Morgan is now back on Earth. “Congratulations. Welcome home. You’ve given a new meaning to higher education,” Mission Control told the crew as the shuttle touched down on the runway at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, a large parachute slowing its travel as it taxied to a halt and astronauts’ families cheered.
