It’s a big day for all those shuttle lovers! October 30th, a day when anyone can witness the retired space shuttle Endeavour at the California Science Center (CSC).
Presently it is in Florida and to take it to the venue in Los Angeles for its display, a NASA jumbo jet, the modified Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, has been called upon from NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in southern California.
It has already arrived yesterday (11th September) at 5:05 p. m. EDT (2105 GMT) at Kennedy's Shuttle Landing Facility, the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral.
This is for the last time that this shuttle aircraft will be harmonizing with one of the winged spacecraft for a transcontinental trip. On Monday, September 17, the orbiter will take off from the 15,000-foot solid strip. It will take three days to reach the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). After this, in October, Endeavour will take a leave for reaching its destination at CSC's new Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Endeavour Display Pavilion.
It would be a two-day long journey, as the flight will perform a 12-mile parade through the streets of Inglewood and L. A. On October 13, the shuttle Endeavour will be there for its grand appearance at CSC.
