Calling Houston….we have successfully landed at our new home in California. The Space Shuttle Endeavour reached its final resting place at California Science Center. Science Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rudolph told reporters just days ago,”Once at the science museum, the shuttle, which had its first launch in 1992, will be on display forever.”

The Endeavour was the replacement for the destroyed Challenger shuttle, which made its debut in 1992 and flew 25 times before it was retired. It logged 123 million miles in space and circled Earth nearly 4,700 times.
