I have been WAITING for a chance to see Space shuttle Endeavour at the California Science Museum ever since it made LA it’s permanent home. I remember having my entire class run outside to see Endeavor as it was flying through Orange County on top of an airplane so my students can see this moment in history. Here are a couple pictures of Endeavor from the LA Times when she made that historic last flight across California and was pulled through the streets of Los Angeles for 2 days to reach her destination at the California Science Center.
I FINALLY had a chance to go with my husband and kids this past weekend and WOW…she is AMAZING to see up close!
First of all, Endeavour is MASSIVE!! No wonder they had to build a separate hangar just for the space shuttle named the Samuel Oschin Pavilion. I could BARELY get the entire space shuttle into my frame and I stood in the farthest part of the building just to see if I can fit it without using a panoramic frame. She is 122.1 feet long with a wingspan of 78 feet.
She is absolutely stunning to see in person. The exterior shows wear from obvious years of use but just to see the details of the fuselage was amazing.
Here are 5 pretty cool facts about Endeavour:

I’ll leave you with a picture of my son as he looked up in awe at the Endeavour.
