Ticket pic of the week: An Endeavour out of this world

Extraordinary things have become ordinary over time, thanks to the skills and courage of the NASA folks.

While Earth people fuss over everyday matters, the crew of the shuttle Endeavour continues construction on the International Space Station a couple of hundred miles overhead.

Here, this week, astronauts Michael Fincke, left, and Andrew Feustel stow equipment in the shuttle bay.

It's the last of almost three dozen space flights for Endeavour. Discovery has already been retired. One more later this summer with Atlantis.

And that's it.

Then, the United States of America starts renting seats on Russian spacecraft.

What will happen if we get a conflict with the Russians and they hold our people hostage, we should not allow another country to lead in space travel.
