When the NASA shuttle Endeavor landed, it helped a woman discover that her car was being stolen. When the spacecraft land, they produce loud sonic booms due to the very high speeds at which they are traveling. During the landing, this series of sonic booms woke a woman in Florida, who then looked out of her window. She saw two men inside of her car who then ran off and into another car. After calling the police, the men were found and charged with burglary. This was the last mission for the shuttle Endeavor, as it will be decommissioned and then sent to the California Science Center in Los Angeles. The other shuttles will also be decommissioned and sent to various museums for the public to view and enjoy up close.
