A massive space shuttle fuel tank is winding its way through the streets of Los Angeles Saturday, on a 16-mile trek heading to the California Science Center. It's set to be displayed with the space shuttle Endeavor. The tank, which was never used in a mission, is the "last flight-qualified space shuttle external tank in existence," according to the science center. As reporter Danielle Karson tells our Newscast unit, ET-94 weighs "66,000 lbs., and is as tall as a 15-story building."
