The Space Shuttle Endeavour lumbered across the streets of LA on it's way to it's new Home at the California Science Center. It quickly learned the first rule of living in LA... It always takes longer to get where you're going than you plan on. Although the Shuttle was behind schedule by several hours, it did not hamper the enthusiasm of the thousands and thousands who turned out to witness history in the making. From the moment that the shuttle came into your view down the street from where ever you were, you knew the wait was well worth it. Endeavour moved slowly down the streets, occasionally having to stop to make sure it could manage safely past obstacles that often were only a matter of inches from the wingtips. The slow march was actually welcomed by the crowd as it gave ample opportunity to snap off a card load of pictures. Some getting family pictures done as the shuttle passed behind them. Others just wanting to capture a moment in time that will never happen again. The one thing everyone shared was an overwhelming wonder at the sheer size of this spacecraft making its way through our city. People were curb side, on roof tops, standing on their cars, fences and on each others shoulders. The California Science Center, along with the police forces of several cities and community leaders, public utilities, road services and countless others worked together flawlessly and made it all look easy to get a giant spaceship through town.
