Shuttle Endeavor at the CA Science Center

Here's a little photo essay of my day at the California Science Center, checking out the shuttle Endeavor.  If you haven't seen it yet, make an effort to go--it's well worth it.  I can't describe the experience of seeing it in person, but it made an indelible impression on me, to say the least.  Parking at the museum is ten bucks for the day, but entrance to the exhibit is only two dollars!  There are lots of new restaurants surrounding USC as well, so you can make a fun day of it--or bring a picnic and eat in the rose garden next door.

One of my favorite spots in the museum is right outside the front doors.

The shop just inside the front door had cool plush astronaut and ship sculptures.
Walking in....The crowds heading upstairs to the Endeavor exhibit were immense, especially with the school groups.
