The Space Shuttle Endeavour is moved into the hangar in the California Science Center on October 14, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. NASA's Space Shuttle Program ended in 2011 after 30 years and 135 missions.

In September Southern California residents watched intently as the space shuttle Endeavour took its maiden voyage in the skies and on the streets of Los Angeles. Now we’ll be about to see the spacecraft in her permanent resting place, at the California Science Center. The Endeavour will become the center piece of the 18,000-square-foot building until a new air and space wing opens in about five years. Once that move is complete the shuttle will be displayed vertically, as though it’s ready for take-off.

WEIGH IN:

Does the new Endeavour exhibit make you want to visit the California Science Center?
