Wayward tree branches and other obstacles caused small delays in the space shuttle Endeavour’s move from LAX to a Westchester shopping center parking lot, where it is now parked for nine hours.
The shuttle’s progress was delayed as emergency tree trimmers were called in to do some last-minute shearing. And a wayward pipe forced crews to do some quick slicing to keep the shuttle moving. By 5:45 a.m., Endeavour arrived at the parking lot, its first resting spot in a two-day, 12-mile journey to its retirement home at the California Science Center.
Steve Gregory will be following the shuttle all day and will have updates for us!
