ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 5 (UPI) — The seven space shuttle Endeavour astronauts who returned to Earth Aug. 21 will be honored this week during ceremonies at Florida's Walt Disney World.

Orlando, Fla.; the Osceola High School Aviation Academy in Kissimmee, Fla.; and Orlando-area fourth- and fifth-graders. The education session will be Webcast live on NASA-TV.

The Endeavour crew members are Cmdr. Scott Kelly, Canadian Space Agency astronaut Dave Williams and
