Endeavour launched from Kennedy Space Center on April 9. 1994 at 7:05 AM EDT and landed at Edwards AFB on April 20 at 9:54 AM PDT. The shuttle orbited 183 times at an altitude of 121 nautical miles at an inclination of 57 degrees and travelled 4.7 million miles. The mission lasted  11 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes, and 30 seconds. The primary payload was the Space Radar Laboratory (SRL-1), located in payload bay; activated by crew and operated by teams on ground. SRL-1 included the Spaceborne...
