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 goddamn science or what?”
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]
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.
