Trip Report To Boldly Go Where Thousands Have Gone Before - Space Shuttle Endeavour

Jump to last reply

What better way to spend Memorial Day 2013 than head down to the California Science Center in Los Angeles to check out the Space Shuttle Endeavour. I’ve been interested in space travel ever since the Mercury astronaut days, so I was excited to be able to see the shuttle up close, not knowing I’d even get a little Mercury fix at the end.

We had purchased our timed tickets on line, and I chose for us to go as early as possible (10 a.m.). The tickets are free, but you have to pay a $2 “convenience” charge to print them out at home. Gee..thanks!

The lot for the California Science Center is located right next to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, home of USC football, the site of the 1932 and 1984 Olympics and former home of the Los Angeles (now St. Louis) Rams. Parking is $10, which is more than the four tickets (even with the “convenience” charge) combined. Our friends Susan and Lenny accompanied us.

Tracy and I had visited the California Science Center back in 2010, just a few weeks before my long hospitalization, which could have turned ironic if I had died since we had gone to see the Mummies Of The World Exhibition (photo of mummy...the guy on the right wise guy... is from the internet...photos were not allowed).
