Astronauts name SpaceX spaceship ‘Endeavour’ after retired shuttle

The first NASA astronauts to launch from the U.S. since the end of the space shuttle program have named their commercial spacecraft after one of the retired winged orbiters.

Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken revealed the name of their SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule during a live broadcast from Earth orbit, about three hours after they lifted off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Saturday (May 30).
