Space Shuttle Last Stop
Spectators watch as the space shuttle Endeavour slowly moves down Martin Luther King Blvd. in Los Angeles, Sunday, Oct.14, 2012. In thousands of Earth orbits, the space shuttle Endeavour traveled 123 million miles (198 million kilometers). But the last few miles (kilometers) of its final journey are proving hard to get through. Endeavour's 12-mile (19-kilometer) crawl across Los Angeles to the California Science Museum hit repeated delays Saturday, leaving expectant crowds along city streets and at the destination slowly dwindling. Officials estimated the shuttle, originally expected to finish the trip early Saturday evening, would not arrive until mid-morning Sunday. (AP Photo/Alex Gallardo)
