After 20 years of service and 25 missions, NASA's fifth and final space worthy shuttle, the Endeavour, was finally retired last week.
The 85-ton space shuttle was hauled from the Los Angeles International Airport to its new home in the California Science Center. The distance it needed to travel was only 12 miles, but it was no trip to the park, that's for sure.
Whereas it used to rocket itself through space at a mind-blowing speed of 17,500 miles per hour (28,200 km/h), on the streets of LA, it barely went faster than 2mph or less (~3 km/h) while rolling on a gigantic dolly, and that's when it wasn't forced to come to a full stop.
There were many obstacles to overcome, including trees, poles and even hoards of people who had gathered along the route to see the space shuttle.
As a result, Endeavour's 26th mission began late Thursday, October 11 and ended on Sunday, October 14.
