Spelling is not rocket science

he 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.
Ummmm. wow.

Adding the "u" is normally part of motherland English. The sign has it spelled correctly for American English.

Indeed this is true Mr. Nehura.
But Endeavour was the astronaut's NAME.
