Racing to the Red Light was on-location in Westchester earlier this morning, to bear witness to the orbital vehicle Endeavour sitting in the parking lot behind Bed Bath & Beyond.

(How many times is that likely to happen again?)

Today, the retired Space Shuttle Endeavour begins its two-day trek across western Los Angeles from LAX to the California Science Center near USC in south central L.A.

The scenes in the street were quite surreal. What a treat to see a piece of humankind’s finest scientific and engineering accomplishments in such a pedestrian setting.
