Space Shuttle ‘Endeavor’ after traveling 123 million miles in space with thousands of orbits around the earth, is on a final 12 mile trip to the California Science Center Museum this weekend in Los Angeles! The 122 foot long, 78 feet wide shuttle stands 5 stories tall at the tail, making it the largest object ever to move through Los Angeles. Combined weight with the transporter is 80 tons. To make travel room for the Endeavour, workers have removed 400 trees along curbs to clear a path, but the science center will plant more than 1,000 trees to make up for their loss. Some street lights, traffic signals, power poles and parking meters also have been temporarily removed.
