A team of filmmakers under the watchful eye of Matthew Givot made this time lapse entitled “Mission 26”.
It’s a beautiful look at how the shuttle made it from the airport to the Science Museum and it gives you an idea of just how massive this shuttle really is.
Here’s what Givot had to say about the film:
This truly was a once in a lifetime opportunity that we are so happy and honored to have been be a part of.
The Endeavor started on Thursday night and went on until Sunday night, with very little sleep to no sleep. The only thing that kept us going was pure love of the art and adrenaline. One thing that stood out the most for me, while I was shooting, was the people of Los Angeles. It was so powerful to see the excitement on peoples faces and the pride of their home town. No matter how many times I would see the Shuttle it would never get old.
This has been an amazing experience that I will never forget. My hope is that this film will show you the amount of dedicated people and teamwork that it took to get the Endeavour to its new home. Enjoy.
