The Space Shuttle’s Last Journey

On Sunday 14th October, the space shuttle Endeavour made its final journey. Not to the International Space Station or the Hubble Space Telescope or even to low Earth orbit – this trip was through the streets of Los Angeles. Over the course of three days, Endeavour was carried (as befits a hero) from LAX, past thousands of lucky residents, to its new home at  the California Science Center.


You can see the three-day journey, compressed into a few minutes, in this video from the Los Angeles Times, which we found via the excellent Astronomy Picture of the Day site.



Valé, Endeavour. The SF Gateway salutes you.
