Space Shuttle Endeavour rolling through Los Angeles this morning

Final mission for Space Shuttle Endeavour

LOS ANGELES, Calif -  LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The space shuttle Endeavor is making its final journey to a Los Angeles museum.
 
   The giant spacecraft began its 2-mph crawl through streets near Los Angeles International Airport at about 2 a.m. Friday. Crowds in the neighborhood lined the streets to watch it being hauled past. Some called it a once-in-a-lifetime sight.
 
   About 400 trees and many traffic lights were taken down to make room for the five-story-tall shuttle with its 78-foot wingspan.
 
   The shuttle's 160-wheeled carrier stopped briefly so that crews could prune more trees.
 
   The shuttle will go 3 miles and then stop for nine hours to prepare for a final 9-mile roll the California Science Center.
