I love this image. Two kids playing basketball while NASA's space shuttle Endeavour peeks from a corner on the background. It's like, "Sup boys? No interest in f*cking science or what?"
Bryan Chan has put together an extraordinary time-lapse video chronicling the agonizing twists and turns made by the Space Shuttle Endeavour as it made its 19 km (12 mile) journey through Los Angeles to the California Science Center. [LA Times]
Check out this animated GIF. It's the toughest moment of the space shuttle Endeavour's drive across Los Angeles, en route to its permanent retirement place, at the Science Center.
The retired space shuttle Endeavour rolled into its final home this morning, the California Science Center at Exposition Park. But before being put out to pasture, Endeavour got one final ride this weekend, through the streets of Los Angeles, treating locals to the surreal sight of a space shuttle in their midst.
I don't know if it's the most stunning or not—NYC was pretty awesome—but Endeavour looks absolutely magnificent flying over Los Angeles en route to LAX. The sense of scale is absolutely fantastic. What a beautiful shot. Click to see the ultra-HD version. [APOD]
The arrival of Endeavour in Los Angeles last week has been described by many as the final note in the coda to NASA's shuttle program. To commemorate its end, we turned to the program's beginnings, where we discovered a stunning assortment of high resolution concept art. (If you've been hunting for a new background…
Famed cinematographer and Gizmodo friend Vincent Laforet went to Los Angeles International Airport to capture the last flight of space shuttle Endeavour using a RED Epic camera at 5K resolution with Canon 800mm 5.6 lens in slow motion—-96 frames per second.
The Space Shuttle Endeavour just completed its final flight around California today and if you were wondering how a freaking space shuttle ends up on top of a 747, well, watch the video above. It's a mounting process that's not unlike strapping a few bikes to your car's roof (only a wee bit more complicated).
It's wheels down one last time for Endeavour. Following a cross country trip that began three days ago in Florida, the iconic Space shuttle (the last to ever take flight) has landed at Los Angeles International Airport atop NASA's Shuttle Carrier Aircraft.
Next month, the retired space shuttle Endeavour will be making a 12-mile journey to its final resting place at a Los Angeles museum. But to get there, local officials will have to make way for the 112-foot-long, 78-foot-wide, and 5-storey-tall behemoth. And in order to do so they'll have to remove 400 trees, and…
NASA says they're "Pratt Whitney Rocketdyne engines" from space shuttles Endeavour and Atlantis... but we think they look an awful lot like incognito Dalek shipping containers.
Things can be pretty slow-going on the red planet for NASA's Mars rover Opportunity. Since January of 2004, the solar-powered Opportunity has been chugging along the planet's surface at a leisurely pace of 60 centimeters an hour, but there's exciting news on the horizon. Or rather, its horizon.
After a total journey of 122 million miles and 25 perfect missions, Endeavour has landed in the dark. She was the youngest in the space shuttle fleet. This is how she arrived home:
Endeavour was launched into space today for the last time ever. Prayers don't shoot shuttles into space, though: Hurtling Endeavour and its crew 28 miles straight up were a pair of 1.3-million-pound reusable solid rockets.
Two grilled lobster tails, one baked potato, butter and sour cream. That's what Mike Fincke—USAF Colonel and STS-134 Mission Specialist 1 in the space shuttle Endeavour—had for his "send off" breakfast today, just before the launch.
Another bittersweet day for the American space program: After having a delicious breakfast astronauts launched aboard the space shuttle Endeavour, her last flight ever and the penultimate flight for the shuttle program. Watch the video here.
Apparently, there's a heater problem in pertaining to the Endeavour's Auxiliary Power Unit. To quote Sam, "Duchess Middleton will NOT be upstaged." [Twitter]
On its final flight, the space shuttle Endeavour will carry the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer. It's a state-of-the-art particle detector that provides perhaps our best chance to find dark matter particles, and in this video NASA scientists explain how it works.
