Giant Fuel Tank Just The Latest Space Oddity To Travel LA Streets

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — As the massive orange space shuttle fuel tank traveled from Marina del Rey to Exposition Park Saturday, the giant tank evoked memories of the last piece of NASA hardware to travel across Los Angeles — the space shuttle Endeavour, which traversed L.A. en route to the California Science Center in 2012.

“That was great,” onlooker Sean Welsh said of watching Endeavour travel L.A.’s streets. “The atmosphere and everything was incredible.”

The tank may lack some of the cache of the space shuttle, but it still awed passersby who watched as it towered over them, moving inland at a walking pace.

The fuel tank, ET-94, that made its way through L.A. Saturday will play something of a supporting a role to Endeavour at the California Science Center — joining with the spacecraft to give visitors a representation of just how massive they are when joined together.
