Even the sky was not the limit for the space craft Endeavour, which went beyond the limits of the sky to the space and help mankind to explore the depth of the space. The space craft Endeavour has successfully completed 25 space missions in time period 1992 to 2001. Endeavour completed its final mission with a landing at the Kennedy Space Center at 06:34 UTC on June 1, 2011.
After its decommission in 2011 the Endeavour space craft will now be placed for exhibition in the California Science Centre for the space enthusiast to look at this space marvel which has been a key member of NASA’s space program.
The Endeavour currently sits at Los Angeles International Airport, where it landed Friday atop a modified Boeing 747 jet after a three-day farewell tour that first took off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. From the airport it will be transported to the California Science Centre on October12 by four computer-controlled transport vehicles making its way through the streets of California at a speed of about 2 mph which is a far cry from the space plane’s 17,500 mph orbital speed. The aircraft will reach the California Science Centre on October 13.
The museum will spend about two weeks touching up the orbiter and its exhibit. Endeavour, will finally go on display Oct. 30.
