Historic Moment: Space Shuttle Endeavour Takes Its Place at the California Science Center

Witness history as Space Shuttle Endeavour is lifted into its California Science Center home. Streaming live on Space.com at 12:30 a.m. EST.



On the early morning of January 30, a monumental event is set to unfold as the space shuttle Endeavour is lifted into its new museum-exhibit home at the California Science Center. This complex operation, involving a towering 450-foot-tall crane, marks a historic achievement in exhibit installation, breaking new ground outside the realms of NASA or Air Force facilities.

Scheduled to commence at 12:30 a.m. EST (0530 GMT), viewers can witness the live action on Space.com, courtesy of the California Science Center, or directly via the Los Angeles museum. The duration of the lift remains uncertain, adding an element of suspense to this unprecedented event.

However, eager spectators should note that the Endeavour display won’t be immediately accessible. The future Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center, a significant expansion of the California Science Center, is slated to become Endeavour’s permanent residence. With an anticipated 18-month construction period and subsequent artifact and exhibit installation, an official opening date is yet to be announced.

Endeavour, NASA’s youngest shuttle, holds a remarkable legacy, having completed 25 missions before the retirement of the space shuttle program in 2011. As it takes its place in this new chapter at the California Science Center, the Endeavour will continue to inspire and educate generations to come, embodying the spirit of human exploration and technological achievement.
