Space Shuttle Endeavour

Tees Valley-born Nicholas Patrick flew as a crew member on two Space Shuttles, named after Captain’s Cook’s ships Endeavour and Discovery, to help build the International Space Station. In 2010, Nicholas carried a flag modelled on one which flew on Captain Cook’s Endeavour to the International Space Station in honour of the great navigator and fellow adventurer from the Tees Valley, who inspired a whole new era of exploration.
