Space Shuttle Endeavour

Just a couple months ago, we had seen the Space Shuttle Endeavour fly overhead, piggy back on top of a Boeing 747 jumbo jet. Now, the Endeavour's permanent home is the California Science Center in Los Angeles, and we were able to visit during Thanksgiving break. It was fascinating to see the orbiter up close, and also in the special movie beforehand that showed Endeavor making its way through the streets of LA all the way to the museum. The huge engines, the massive wings, the unique numbered "tiles" underneath, the sum of all its parts makes for an amazing spacecraft!
