E.T. float home!
Sure, its arrival was not as elaborate or widely celebrated as the Shuttle Endeavour‘s, but it’s still a phenomenal piece of engineering and history come to roost here in the City of Angels.

The space shuttle external tank known as ET-94 never flew, but it finished a decidedly different journey, by sea, early Wednesday when it docked in Marina del Rey atop a sea barge.
