Endeavour completes final night launch


The US space shuttle has made its final night launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The Endeavour orbiter soared into the Florida sky on a 13-day mission to the International Space Station.

It will be the final night launch for Nasa which plans just four further shuttle missions after this one, all in daylight hours.
