Endeavour, at top, leaves the OPF for the final time and heads for the VAB, as Atlantis takes its place. The switch took place Monday morning. Endeavour leaves KSC on September 17 and arrives in Los Angeles on September 20. It goes to the California Science Museum overnight October 12, arriving the afternoon of October 13. Atlantis goes down the road to the KSC visitor’s Center, scheduled to arrive on November 2. These are the last of the shuttles, and shuttle mockups that remain at KSC. When they are gone, the program is fully ended and the last personnel who worked on them will be gone as well.
