I took my kids to see Endeavour in LA this weekend. The California Science Center itself was great, with plenty of space relics (including Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo capsules/command modules) and lots of other stuff, too.
But Endeavour was just...incredible. Those main engines are BIG! And to get to see an actual piece of history like that...incredible again.
Has anyone else been there yet? Or to the other shuttles? My new goal is to take the kids to visit each of them at some point.
I've always known what a large and complicated machine the shuttle was, but seeing it up close gave me a real appreciation for the men and women who rode on it.
