Space shuttle Endeavour's astronauts have been checking their ship for any damage from last night's launch.

Astronauts unfurled an extra-long inspection boom to scrutinize
Endeavour's right wing.
At least two pieces of debris were spotted in launch photos, and engineers were poring over the images to determine whether the debris - or anything else - hit Endeavour.

Even a minor gash could be trouble.
The shuttle Columbia was brought down by a hole in its wing the size of a dinner plate.

Endeavour and its crew of seven are on track to rendezvous with the space station tomorrow.
