Shuttle Endeavour marks first anniversary in Los Angeles

One year ago, Endeavour’s 26th and final mission was a 12-mile route through the streets of Los Angeles.

The California Science Center is commemorating the first anniversary of Endeavour’s arrival at the Samuel Oschin Pavilion with a celebration to thank everyone who joined in supporting the shuttle’s historic journey. Endeavour Fest will take place at the Science Center from Friday through Sunday.

Tens of thousands of spectators crowded sidewalks and rooftops last October as the space shuttle Endeavour crawled across the streets of Los Angeles and Inglewood, an overwhelming welcome home for the retired spacecraft.

Two weeks later, when the California Science Center opened the shuttle to public view, attendance at the Exposition Park museum surged. In just a few months, more than 1 million people visited the Science Center, which had averaged roughly 1.6 million visitors per year prior to the shuttle’s arrival.

Now, nearly one year after Endeavour made its debut, crowds are still piling through the museum doors. California Science Center officials say almost 2.7 million people will see the shuttle in its inaugural year — a record-setting figure that surpasses even the estimate they readjusted after the first rush.
