    Space shuttle Endeavour took off from Kennedy Space Center on Wednesday—though while bolted to the top of a jumbo jet. Endeavour, NASA’s youngest space shuttle, flew to Houston, where it will stay overnight before heading to Los Angeles.

Endeavour debuted in 1992 and it flew 128 million miles, before it was retired last year along with the rest of the shuttle fleet.
