Multimedia of Space Shuttle Endeavor's Final Flight, as it passes over Cal Tech/NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, CA 21 SEP 2012.
It was bittersweet to see Shuttle Endeavor today. One of my projects was to work on an environmental assessment and cleanup "up the hill" at the Santa Susanna Field Laboratory, and one of the most incredible things I have ever seen, heard or felt, was when they would test the space shuttle engines there at Rocketdyne. And I did watch a space shuttle land at Edwards AFB once too, nothing short of awe inspiring. This is truly the symbolic end of an era for aerospace in Southern California.
