Toyota Tundra Eneavour Tow Truck Now Part of Science Display

Visitors Will Be Able To Lift Nearly Three Ton Truck With Lever

Jun 3, 2013
Toyota made quite an impact by using the Tundra to tow the space shuttle Endeavour home to its final destination at the California Science Center in Los Angeles in October 2012. That very truck is joining the shuttle in an exhibit near the parking structure at the Science Center, where visitors can attempt to lift the 5625-pouind truck, using a fulcrum demonstrating the physics principle of leverage.
At a ceremony last week, the Giant Lever Exhibit was attended by Michael Rouse, vice president of Diversity, Philanthropy and Community Affairs for Toyota Motor Sales, Lynda Oschin, chair of the Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Oschin Family Foundation, and Garrett Reisman, an astronaut who flew on the Endeavour and passenger in the Tundra during its historic tow across the Manchester Bridge in October.

During the ceremony, a check for $401,300 was presented to the California Science Center Foundation by Toyota, as part of a fundraising tweet drive, where twitter followers retweeted to meet the fundraising goal. Endeavour is currently on display at the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center at the Science Center.
