Endeavour: A Time Lasped Journey Through the Streets of Los Angeles

Bryan Chan and the Los Angeles Times put a great series of time lapsed photos in a YouTube video of the Space Shuttle Endeavour being transported from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to its final resting place at California Science Center’s Samuel Oschin Air and Space Centerin October  2012.   At many points in this move the Endeavour barely cleared trees, light poles and wires.  Cost of the move: an estimated $10 million.

The California Science Center’s Endeavour exhibit is one of only four displaying the retired shuttles. Discovery, the fleet leader, is now at the Smithsonian in northern Virginia. The prototype Enterprise is in New York City on board the converted aircraft carrier at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. Atlantis, the last shuttle to fly in space during NASA’s 135th mission, will be moved to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in November 2012.
