Space Shuttle Endeavour's drag chute is fully deployed as the spacecraft rolls toward wheels stop on runway 15 at NASA's Kennedy Space Center completing a 13-day mission to the International Space Station. Aboard are astronauts Scott Kelly, STS-118 commander; Charlie Hobaugh, pilot; Rick Mastracchio, Canadian Space Agency's Dave Williams, Barbara R. Morgan, Tracy Caldwell and Alvin Drew, all mission specialists. The STS-118 mission began Aug. 8 and installed a new gyroscope, an external spare parts platform and another truss segment to the expanding 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.
