Endeavour Fest | October 11-13 2013

The California Science Center is commemorating the one-year anniversary of Endeavour’s arrival at its Samuel Oschin Pavilion with a celebration to thank everyone who joined in supporting the shuttle’s historic journey. Come see Space Shuttle Endeavour up close. Graphic displays surrounding the orbiter discuss its thundering ascent into orbit, its high-speed runway landing, the functions of key components – including its thermal protection system, orbital maneuvering system, and main engines — and reveal the science and technology behind one of the most advance transportation systems ever created.
