[i]Mike Fincke: We're here to give the title to the California Science Center. Mark Kelly said it best when we landed. He said the mission of Endeavour isn't over. It's going to inspire new generations of explorers and this is a beautiful place not too far from where Endeavour was born, right here on the West Coast, to inspire students. It was built in Palmdale, at Rockwell, and Downey.
Q: I want to get your views on the space shuttle selection process. Did any of you think Houston should've gotten a space shuttle?
Johnson: Of course. Trouble is, there's not enough space shuttles to go around. I know there's a lot of logic going into the thinking. We have a bunch of smart people. The space shuttle was born here in California. There's a population center here in California.
Fincke: This is a bastion of aerospace.
Johnson: So it's a great choice. Did Houston want to have a shuttle? Of course they did. But there were a lot of other places that wanted a space shuttle as well.[/i]
