Giant space shuttle tank arrives in L.A. by sea

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. It’s a remarkable story of weathering storms at sea and even performing a rescue before being trucked to its new home at the California Science Center!

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.
