NASA Signs Over Shuttle Title

NASA Signs Over Shuttle TitleNASA has transferred ownership of the retired space shuttle Endeavour to a California museum at a ceremony at the California Science Center.

The centre was attended by several members of Endeavour’s last crew including Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ astronaut-husband Mark Kelly.

From news.yahoo.com:

Endeavour is expected to arrive next year at Los Angeles International Airport and then be towed through the streets to the museum near downtown Los Angeles.

Museum President Jeffrey Rudolph says Endeavour will be housed horizontally in a temporary display until a permanent exhibit is built. Its final position will be vertical, as if it’s ready to launch.

Museums in suburban Washington, D.C., Florida, and New York will be receiving the remaining shuttles and prototype vehicle.
