Space shuttle Endeavour doors shut after cargo loaded for launch-like display (photos)
[i]Three weeks after they were opened for the first time in three years, space shuttle Endeavour's cargo bay doors were closed on Tuesday (Oct. 21) to await the next phase of the retired NASA winged orbiter's museum display.
The California Science Center (CSC) in Los Angeles successfully closed out its "Go for Payload" activities by again sealing the shuttle's 60-foot-long (18-meter) bay doors that were designed to be opened and closed only in space. Until one of the doors is next opened in 2018, they will hide from view the reason they were briefly opened now — Endeavour's newly-added payload.[/i]
