Space shuttle Endeavour finally arrives at California Science Centre
The retired space shuttle Endeavour rolled into its retirement home at a museum in the conclusion of a slow-motion parade through the narrow streets of Los Angeles.
Endeavour finally arrived yesterday at Exposition Park, the site of the California Science Centre where the shuttle will go on permanent display.
Endeavour nosed out of Los Angeles International Airport before dawn on Friday for the 12-mile trip.
Organisers had expected the shuttle to complete its journey by Saturday evening but it fell behind schedule as crews had to make late adjustments to clear room for it.
The shuttle, which prompted cheers and expressions of awe from spectators as it inched through the city’s streets, will become a tourist attraction at the centre. Endeavour was largely built in southern California and was a workhorse of the US space programme, flying 25 missions.
