[b]Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)[/b]
[b]What day is the shuttle coming to the Science Center?[/b]
After Endeavour’s final mission, it will take some time for NASA to decommission it for display and transport it to Los Angeles. We are beginning immediately to work with NASA on logistics and schedule and will share schedule information as it is finalized.
[b]Will I have to pay to see the shuttle?[/b]
Currently the Science Center does not charge general admission and there is no plan at this time to charge to view the Endeavour.
[b]Will I be able to sit inside the shuttle?[/b]
Short answer: No.
Explanation: The Shuttle is a priceless gift to the people of California and Los Angeles and the California Science Center plans to maintain the highest standards of conservation to protect Endeavour. To preserve the vehicle for future generations it is not possible to access or make physical contact with the vehicle. However, the Science Center is exploring display configurations that will permit guests to get as close to Endeavour as possible and to examine the Orbiter from different perspectives and elevations.
[b]Why was the Science Center picked to keep the shuttle?[/b]
We believe that we best met NASA’s criteria. We are dedicated to science learning and education and have an international reputation for high quality exhibits. Studies show that the Science Center is very effective at fulfilling its mission. California has a strong historic connection to the shuttles, as all of the orbiters were built in southern California.
[b]Will there be an event with the astronauts so we can ask questions about their adventures on the shuttle?[/b]
We do not currently have any events scheduled. We will post information on our website and email it to our members and email list.
