The space shuttle Endeavour flew over the UA Mall Thursday, during its flight from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Tucson leg of Endeavour’s flight honored former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, the astronaut who commanded Endeavour’s final mission in May 2011. The shuttle, mounted to a 747, descended to 1,500 feet and flew directly over the Mall, where spectators cheered as it appeared.
