Space Shuttle Endeavor

The last of the space shuttles returned home to Los Angeles. After flying around the state of California, past icons such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Queen Mary, Disneyland, the Hollywood Sign and many other places, Endeavor made its way through the streets of the city to the California Science Center. Tickets are free, but you need a reservation. Prior to seeing the shuttle, you go through an exhibit of the history of all the shuttles, and even see tires from the last landing.

[George Geary, 11/05/2012]

The museum provides exhibits on the "space potty" and an opportunity to touch the actual tires used by the shuttle on landing.
