Maybe you remember, a couple of years ago when the Space Shuttle Endeavour made its way to the California Science Center in LA. 

It was flown in on the back of a 747 and slowly moved through the city. Trees had to be uprooted to fit it down streets, which were also shut to traffic, But it was a huge event as thousands of people came out to look at what was happening.

Well, LA will get to experience another shuttle related trip. That's because the California Science Center will also be getting the last remaining shuttle fuel tank. And it's being transported all of the way from Louisiana.

Jeffrey Rudolph, the President of the California Science Center, joins A Martinez to talk about what it'll take to bring the huge fuel tank to the CSC.
