This is a view of the underside of Endeavour taken after its landing on runway 15 at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The damage to the tiles occurred from a piece of foam on the external tank during launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour on mission STS-118 on Aug. 8. After extensive engineering analysis of such images and testing on the ground, the Mission Management Team decided the tile did not pose a risk to the crew during re-entry. Endeavour landed safely at 12:32 p.m. EDT at NASA's Kennedy Space Center after a 13-day mission to the International Space Station. Photo credit: NASA

Endeavour clears the trees as it approaches landing on runway 15 at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The Space Shuttle Endeavour crew, led by Commander Scott Kelly, completed a 13-day mission to the International Space Station. Endeavour's main gear touched down at 12:32:16 p.m. EDT. Nose gear touchdown was at 12:32:29 p.m. and wheel stop was at 12:33:20 p.m. Endeavour traveled nearly 5.3 million miles, landing on orbit 201. STS-118 was the 119th space shuttle flight, the 22nd flight to the station, the 20th flight for Endeavour and the second of four missions planned for 2007. This was the 65th landing of an orbiter at Kennedy. Photo credit: NASA/Ken Thornsley
