Despite threats from Hurricane Dean, space shuttle Endeavor landed safely today. There was some concern because of the hurricane and damage to the tile on the shuttle which happened during the launch.

This flight was pretty special. On board was teacher Barbara Morgan. She was the backup to Christa McAuliffe so many years ago. When space shuttle Challenger exploded killing McAuliffe, the teacher program was shut down. Morgan lost her chance to go into space.

22 years later, she got another chance. Now perhaps other citizens will get the same opportunity.
