    Hi, Don Lemon,

    The journey of the Endeavour is awesome. There is quite a story behind the Endeavour which I have not heard mentioned on CNN. It was built to replace the shuttle Challenger. There was a NASA contest for children around the world to name the new shuttle. My students at the International School Manila (ISM) did an interdisciplinary project and chose the name,"Endeavour" which was named after Captain Cook's vessel, the Endeavour. I believe that there was a school in Mississippi which eventually won the contest sponsored by NASA and they chose the name, "Endeavour." NASA could fill you in on the details. I think that it would make a good special interest story.
