Endeavour lands at Kennedy Space Center With commander Scott Kelly at the controls and six other astronauts on board, Space Shuttle Endeavour glided to a perfect landing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida to cap more than 12 days in space. STS-118 saw a new piece added to the International Space Station and 5,800 pounds of equipment and supplies transferred to the orbiting laboratory.

The landing also brought to an end teacher-turned-astronaut Barbara Morgan's first flight into space.

12:32 p.m. - Endeavour and its crew of seven astronauts landed safely on Kennedy Space Center's Runway 15, closing the book on the STS-118 mission to the International Space Station. Before the astronauts depart for the crew quarters, they'll take part in the traditional walkaround of the orbiter that has been their home for nearly two weeks. Once Endeavour is fully safed and ready to leave the runway, it will be towed to the nearby Orbiter Processing Facility, where it will begin processing for its next mission.
