LOS ANGELES (AP) - Endeavour has had plenty of company in its two-day surface street crawl to retirement.
The shuttle has drawn out trails of spectators as it lumbers through urban Southern California streets and throngs of fans when it parks up for a break.
It was greeted by cheering spectators during a late morning pit stop Saturday at the Forum in Inglewood.
After crawling up Crenshaw Boulevard, the shuttle is scheduled to stop for a bit at the intersection with Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. A celebration is planned, including speeches by politicians and a dance performance choreographed by Debbie Allen.
Endeavour hit the pavement before dawn Friday, trundling out of the Los Angeles International Airport on a remote-controlled 160-wheel carrier.
It's is scheduled to inch into the California Science Center late Saturday to spend the rest of its years as a museum piece.
