The next stop on Eric’s family tour of Los Angeles was the California Science Center to visit the Space Shuttle Endeavour.
Endeavour now resides in the Samuel Oschin Pavilion as it awaits construction of its permanent home, set to open in 2017.
Before you head home, don’t forget to stop by the Humans in Space exhibit. Here you can see some of the earliest spacecraft, including the Mercury-Redstone 2 (which sent the first primate into space, paving the way for human space travel) and the Gemini 11 Capsule (one of the earliest human-manned space flights). There’s also a display showcasing some of the early space suits.
