We did it -- Shuttle LIFE launches!

Today at 8:56 a.m. EDT, Space Shuttle Endeavour launched on its final mission, and we are part of this historic moment!

The Planetary Society's Shuttle LIFE experiment will now begin to test the effects of spaceflight on our specially chosen microorganisms. It's a thrilling time for every member and supporter of the Planetary Society!

Thank you for your continued support.

Let's change the world together.
