Space Shuttle Endeavour Moves to California Science Center

Space Shuttle Endeavour is moving to the California Science Center in Los Angeles where it will be put on display in a permanent home, a new addition to the Science Center called the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center.

Along with the orbiter, the pavilion will feature video experiences and significant artifacts such as the Spacehab flown in Endeavour’s payload bay on shuttle mission STS-118.

Guests will begin their experience by visiting Endeavour: The California Story, a companion exhibit featuring images and artifacts that relate the shuttle program to California, where the orbiters were built. The California Story gallery will also feature components that flew into space with Endeavour, such as Endeavour’s potty, galley and the tires from STS-134, Endeavour’s final mission, for guests to see up close. –
