CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Space shuttle Endeavour has just a few more days left to call Cape Canaveral home.
At sunrise Monday, Endeavour will depart NASA's Kennedy Space Center for California, with stops in Texas. The retired shuttle will be bolted to the top of a modified jumbo jet for the four-day trip to Los Angeles.
Endeavour is the second of NASA's three space shuttles to head to a museum. Discovery landed at the Smithsonian Institution's display hangar in Virginia last spring. Endeavour - the youngest shuttle - is bound for the California Science Center. Atlantis will remain at Kennedy.
En route to Los Angeles, Endeavour will spend almost two days at Ellington Field near NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, home to Mission Control.
