Space Shuttle Endeavor Reaches Final Destination

The California Science Center


After a dramatic three-day parade through city streets marked by repeated lengthy delays, the space shuttle Endeavour was greeted by thousands of cheering spectators as it pulled up to its new home at the California Science Center.

The shuttle's arrival, shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday, was more than 16 hours behind schedule, but the 85-ton orbiter survived its 12-mile journey through the city streets, from Los Angeles International Airport to the museum at Exposition Park, without a scratch.
