Stormy skies before shuttle launch

Nasa is preparing to launch its Endeavour shuttle one last time. Once it completes its 14-day mission, Endeavour will be retired to a museum in Los Angeles.

As lightning broke across the Florida sky on Thursday night, it cut an eerie figure waiting on its launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
