Shuttle's Name Misspelled On NASA Launch Pad Sign

EndeavourThe first NASA sign at launch pad 39A encouraging the next launch of space shuttle Endeavour at Kennedy Space Center was misspelled and noticed by someone looking at the craft.

When the shuttle rolled out from the Vehicle Assembly Building Wednesday, a giant "Go Endeavour" sign was put on a fence in front of the craft.

However, one item was missing from the sign: the "u" in Endeavour.

Umm, the word "endeavor" doesn't have a 'u'. Look it up in any dictionary of American English. You must be from England or something. If for some reason, NASA had decided publicly to use the British spelling, then I'll apologize for this comment. But that doesn't seem especially likely, given the country where NASA is based.

Endeavour is named after the first ship commanded by James Cook, the 18th century British explorer, navigator and astronomer.

The picture is hilarious!!!

Makes sense. I should have done more research before posting on impulse as I've been so annoyed to see others do over time.

Sorry :)
