Follow a space shuttle tank through LA with this timelapse video
A couple weekends ago, the last unflown space shuttle external tank made a 19-hour trip through the streets of Los Angeles. It began its overland journey just after midnight on May 21, and finally pulled to a stop at the California Science Center's Samuel Oschin Pavilion around 7:00 p.m.
Space shuttle Endeavour is currently on display inside the pavilion. The tank and Endeavour will eventually be mated together with a pair of solid rocket boosters to create a full vehicle stack in launch position.
ET-94's arrival in California also marks the end of my own tank-chasing escapades. I created my third and final timelapse video; this one contains highlights of the tank rolling through the streets of Los Angeles. Enjoy!
