Final Liftoff of Space Shuttle Endeavour

The Space Shuttle Endeavour embarked on its 25th and final voyage at 12:56 GMT this morning, with six crew members on board. As with all shuttle flights, the Endaevour is equipped with the QNX-powered LCS camera, a high-precision 3D scanner that can detect the tiniest fractures in the shuttle's heat shield, even if they're only a few millimeters in size.

I've got a couple of videos for your viewing pleasure. The first provides an overview of QNX's role in the LCS. The second provides footage of this morning's launch:
