"Mission 26" Collector Series Pin *EXCLUSIVE*
After 25 successful space missions, Space Shuttle Endeavour embarked on a fantastic journey in the fall of 2012 called Mission 26: The Big Endeavour. First the orbiter flew on top of a 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft from Kennedy Space Center in Florida to Los Angeles International Airport. A few weeks later, Endeavour was carefully navigated through 12 miles of city streets in Inglewood and Los Angeles to arrive at its permanent home at the California Science Center.
This Mission 26 emblem was created by the California Science Center to commemorate this incredible event. The numbers 25:123:12 in the blue trail coming from the end of the 747 denote Endeavour’s 25 space missions, the approximate 123 million miles it flew in space, and the 12 miles it traveled through city streets to arrive at the California Science Center.
Collectors Series (CS) pins are larger than their standard version counterparts and are enhanced with special features and treatments. This Mission 26 CS pin is 17/8 inches across and has a raised “pin on pin” shuttle on 747 carrier aircraft. Sandblasted components covered with translucent enamel provide a reflective iridescent effect.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts not for children under 3 yrs. For ages 3 and up.
