A new dawn brings a fresh mission for space shuttle Endeavour, beginning the journey from the Shuttle Landing at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida to its new home at 7:22 a.m. EDT mounted atop NASA's Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, or SCA.
The SCA, a modified 747 jetliner, will fly Endeavour to Los Angeles where it will be placed on public display at the California Science Center. This is the final ferry flight scheduled in the Space Shuttle Program era. For more information on the shuttles' transition and retirement, visit http://www.nasa.gov/transition.
