VATICAN CITY — Space, the final frontier. Even for the pope.

Pope Benedict will have a satellite linkup with the International Space Station on Wednesday May 4 at 5:30 p.m. Rome time to mark the final voyage of the Space Shuttle Endeavour.

One of the astronauts aboard the Endeavour, Italian Colonel Roberto Vittori, will also be bringing a special gift from the pope to the space station crew: a silver medallion, reported the Prefecture of the Papal Household today.

If you haven’t seen the space station orbiting above the Earth yet, you can track it here on this site.
