The community came out in groves to watch the Space Shuttle Endeavour coast through the Crenshaw District.

After several stops on it’s way to California, the space shuttle Endeavour arrived at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and made its trek through the streets of Los Angeles and Inglewood. The shuttle embarked on its last mission in 2012 making it’s way through the Crenshaw District to the California Science Center.

This was one of the largest objects ever be transported over city streets in Los Angeles history. The two-day journey of Endeavour brought viewers from across Southern California, and garnered national interest from numerous media outlets. Hundreds of local youth watched in awe as they came face-to-face with a real space shuttle.

Now visitors can stand within inches of the Endeavor at it’s new home at the California Science Center.
