Space Shuttle Last Stop
Detail of tiles on Space Shuttle Endeavour is shown in Inglewood, Calif., Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012. The Endeavour's terrestrial journey began before dawn Friday when it departed from the Los Angeles International Airport, rolling on a 160-wheeled carrier past diamond-shaped "Shuttle Xing" signs. Over two days, it will trundle 12 miles (19 kilometers) at a top speed of 2 mph (3 kph) to its final destination, the California Science Center where it will be the centerpiece of a new exhibit.
