VIDEO: Shuttle Endeavour takes its final 'road trip' through Los Angeles – John Zarrella reports

(CNN) - The space shuttle Endeavour is being moved to the California Science Center Friday, its final resting place.

The move, which started early Friday, from the Los Angeles International Airport will take about two days, as it negotiates 12 miles of Southern California's infamous roads and highways, NASA officials say.

Once at the Los Angeles science museum, the shuttle, which had its first launch in 1992, will be on display for posterity.

Endeavour, along with Discovery, Enterprise and Atlantis, became a museum piece after NASA ended its 30-year shuttle program in July 2011. All four shuttles have been permanently retired from service.

This morning on "Early Start," John Zarrella reports on shuttle Endeavour's last 'road trip' through Los Angeles to its new home at California Science Center.
