Photograph the Space Shuttle Endeavor in the streets

Needs a location

Details

Endeavour will travel through city streets on a 12-mile journey from the airport to the California Science Center, arriving in the evening on October 13, 2012. This will be the first, last and only time a space shuttle will travel through urban, public city streets. It is truly a national treasure!

As Endeavour travels to its destination in Exposition Park, there will be opportunities to see the shuttle.

8 a.m.: Pass Inglewood City Hall, a designated viewing area. 9 a.m.: Reach the Forum, the scene of a formal welcoming celebration capable of accommodating a crowd as large as 14,000. 9:30 a.m.: Continue east on Manchester Boulevard, turning left at Crenshaw Drive, which connects to Crenshaw Boulevard. 2 p.m.: Arrive at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard for a second celebration, with entertainment produced by Debbie Allen. 2:30 p.m.: Continue east on MLK Boulevard. 4 p.m.: Reach Exposition Park, another designated viewing area and the site of the shuttle’s new home at the California Science Center.
