Earlier this week space shuttle Endeavour departed Florida's Kennedy Space Center on its way to Los Angeles, where it will parade through the streets on its way to the California Science Center. Piggy-backing on a Boeing 747, the 75-ton space ship flew past several landmarks, including the Texas state capitol in Austin, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and the famous Hollywood sign. During its 20 years of service, Endeavor made 25 trips to space and circled the planet almost 4,700 times. Video and additional info at BBC News.
