Endeavor's final journey delayed due to weather
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Houston will host a real space shuttle for the last time this week, but bad weather has postponed its arrival and cut its stay in half.
Inclement weather pushed back Monday's planned flight from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to Ellington Field in Houston.
NASA says Endeavour is now scheduled to leave Tuesday and will spend only one day in Houston instead of two.
Endeavour will be flown on a modified 747 to its new, permanent home at the California Science Museum in Los Angeles. On its journey west, the shuttle is doing low flyovers of sites that contributed to the space program.
Houstonians will be able to view the shuttle while it is parked at Ellington Field. We will continue monitoring for scheduling changes and update you when an arrival time estimate is released.
It's the final flight for the shuttle and the last time anyone will have the chance to see a shuttle ride on the back of a modified 747.
