Photos: Shuttle tank arrives in California

The museum-bound space shuttle tank is coming ashore this morning in Marina del Rey, California, for offloading from its transport barge. The tank has spent the past five weeks at sea, traveling from its manufacturing facility in New Orleans.

A 16-mile parade along Los Angeles city streets to the California Science Center will be Saturday. The last-of-its-kind tank will be used with the retired orbiter Endeavour for a vertical shuttle exhibit.

See our coverage of Endeavour’s final spaceflight and retirement archive.
