'Endeavour Fest' celebrates space shuttle exhibit at California Science Center
[i]One year and nearly 3 million visitors later, NASA's retired space shuttle Endeavour is the focus of a celebration at its Los Angeles museum home.
The California Science Center is commemorating the first anniversary of Endeavour's delivery to its Samuel Oschin Pavilion with a celebration to thank everyone who joined in supporting the shuttle's historic journey. "Endeavour Fest" begins on Friday (Oct. 11) and runs through Sunday with special exhibits and astronaut guest speakers scheduled.
"It is kind of a fusion of the flyover and landing, and then the move of the orbiter and the opening," Kenneth Phillips, the science center's curator of aerospace, said Thursday in an interview with collectSPACE.com. "Those took place about a month apart, so this is a celebration of all of that."[/i]
