The Space Shuttle Endeavour lifted off about an hour ago with Barbara Morgan on board. Morgan was the backup to who was going to be the first teacher in space, Christa McAuliffe, in 1986, when McAuliffe died in the Challenger accident. After the accident, NASA told Morgan that she would fly eventually. Well, it took 21 years, but she finally did! Awesome!
