Will end up on display at California Space Center

US space shuttle Endeavour took off Thursday morning for the second leg of its voyage into retirement in California, riding piggyback on a specially fitted Boeing 747.

The shuttle left Houston early in the morning, after spending the previous day on display at Ellington Air Field.

Endeavour left Cape Canaveral, Florida Wednesday, on the first leg of a transfer that had previously been postponed twice because of bad weather.
