Endeavour treks through LA streets
It’s a surreal sight Los Angeles residents won’t soon forget: A hulking space shuttle strutting down city streets, pausing every so often to get its bearings as it creeps toward retirement. Endeavour's terrestrial journey began before dawn Friday when it departed from the Los Angeles International Airport. Over two days, it will trundle 12 miles at a top speed of 2 mph to its final destination - the California Science Center where it will be the centerpiece of a new exhibit.
