After several weather delays, Endeavour is finally headed to the Southland. A shuttle carrier aircraft, a modified 747, took off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida with Endeavour secured to its top. The SCA landed at Ellington Field in Houston this morning and will remain there overnight. Endeavour will be on display there until 9 p.m. this evening.
Tomorrow at dawn, Endeavour is expected to continue it’s piggyback ride across the country. Endeavour is scheduled to land at LAX sometime before noon this Friday. In October, Endeavour will be moved to its new home as an attraction at the California Science Center in Exposition Park in Los Angeles.
