Space shuttle external tank completes sea voyage, arrives in Los Angeles
[i]NASA's last existing external tank built to launch the space shuttle has made landfall in Los Angeles after a five-week ocean journey.
The massive orange-brown tank, which left New Orleans atop a barge April 12, arrived in Marina del Rey, California Wednesday morning (May 18). The space artifact's 5,000-mile (8,000-kilometer) sea voyage included transiting the Panama Canal to cross from the Atlantic to Pacific Ocean.
"[The tank] has entered the breakwater of the marina!" the California Science Center stated on Twitter. "Can't believe this journey!!"[/i]
