    Space Shuttle Endeavour

    I went to the California Science Center yesterday to see the shuttle. Simply breathtaking! If you go, make sure to also get the ticket to the movie at the IMAX theater about the Hubble Telescope. Mindblowing.

    Fantastic! When the weather gets nicer here I plan to take the wife and kids to see the Enterprise on the Intrepid.

    Sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon with my son when we're visiting my in-law's home in So Cal.
    My Best,

    yes indeed - and Endeavour is featured (in space) in the Hubble 3D movie!

    was amazed to see how complex the Hubble repair was - they even replaced fragile circuit boards, removing dozens of tiny screws, etc. (imagine doing that while wearing space gloves with marshmallow size fingertips!)

    to add to the adventure, we took the new L.A. Metro right to the museum (my 1st time ever on public transportation in LA!)

    ps: there are more Endeavour photos in the Photography> Nikon D600 section of this forum
