[UPDATED – Sunday, October 14, 2012] – Planners appeared to get the engineering right but not the timing. What began as a head start in the morning turned into an ever-increasing delay by night. As crowds waited along the route, officials said the shuttle would be several hours late to its destination, probably arriving sometime Sunday morning.

Endeavour’s 26th and final mission came down to sweating the details. Engineers had mapped its route and possible obstructions down to the millimeter. Crews swarmed around the spacecraft like a court of handmaidens Saturday, taking down streetlights and signs, removing power lines and trimming trees.

The 12-mile route, which includes major thoroughfares such as Manchester, Crenshaw and Martin Luther King Jr. boulevards, looks radically different than it did months ago. Power lines have been lifted and trees have been removed. Nearly 2,700 steel plates were placed on streets to better distribute Endeavour’s weight and protect the century-old infrastructure underneath.

    I just got home from seeing Endeavour with my 10-yr-old son, not far from Crenshaw and Florence where some of the pics above were taken. Amazing! The wildest thing ever to hit Crenshaw Blvd., no doubt! I loved seeing the kids watch it, most of them local neighborhood residents. Someday, as they take their grandchildren to Mars, they can tell of their earliest memory, watching a space vehicle dragged through the streets of South Central!

    The retirement of the shuttle fleet was a hallmark, calling or timely indication that it's time to move forward in space exploration. The recent boom in the privatization of space exploration and tourism will become the driving force for innovation and hitting many more mile markers. May these shuttles, including Challenger, stand as sentinels and guardians into this new era.
