We can see the newly installed ET- 94 at its new home at the California Science Center in Exposition Park. The world’s only remaining external tank built for the space shuttle missions traveled here from the NASA Assembly Facility in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The ET-94 is the last flight-qualified external tank in existence and was donated to the Science Center by NASA. It will become part of the permanent exhibit being designed for the Space Shuttle Endeavour. Fundraising for the project is underway. We can donate to the campaign by calling the California Science Center or by texting ET94 to 41444.
