CAPE CANAVERAL - The US space shuttle Endeavour blasted off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Monday on its final voyage which will deliver a pioneering physics experiment to the International Space Station.

Endeavour roared off the launch pad at 8:56 a.m. EDT (1256 GMT), carrying a six-member crew.

The US space agency NASA plans just one more shuttle mission this summer with sister ship Atlantis before ending the 30-year-old shuttle program.
