There's a Yorkshireman in space.

The space shuttle Endeavour has launched successfully from Cape Canaveral in Florida with a man who was born in the region onboard.

Doctor Nicholas Patrick is helping transport an observation deck for the International Space Station.

The massive Tranquility module includes a viewing dome which will offer breathtaking panoramic views of Earth and space.

Once the room is in place, the space station will be 90 percent complete.
