The Shuttle's Last Mission: LA: Gotta-See Video

//

I’ve got goosebumps.

Last weekend, the last shuttle went on its last mission ever.

The shuttle Endeavour traveled from Los Angeles International Airport to the California Science Center. The trip took two days as NASA engineers working with utility crews, police and other personnel moved the shuttle through the streets of the city of angels.

With the parking of this shuttle, so ends the 30-year mission of the shuttle program. The end of an era of regular, United States-led space travel. The success of the shuttle program is so well known and the image of the shuttle so iconic, it’s almost surreal to see it sharing the same screen as Randy’s Donuts or Roscoe’s chicken and waffles.

This time lapse video of the shuttle’s journey is moving and jaw-dropping. I don’t often say this, but if you watch only one online video this week, it should be this one. via The Verge
