Endeavour makes its final commute through L.A. streets

The space shuttle Endeavour is making its way through Inglewood and Los Angeles to the California Science Center.

Watch its slow journey here and, if you can see the shuttle, send us your iReport here!

Here's how Los Angeles prepared for the road trip - moving trees, power poles and streetlights to cope with the very wide load.

    I guess by putting the Shuttles on display, it's a great tribute to the men and women who designed, built, maintained and flew them. And of course, a reminder to all of us of those who tragically died bringing the dream alive. But to me it begs the question of what's next? Certainly by our engineering capabilities, the US has the ability to put man anywhere in the solar system
    it chooses but we don't seem to have any goals or the political will to do much of anything. I certainly hope the shuttles on display don't turn to rust before we even have an idea of what's next for man in space

    I'm sure this was a heck of a show. A shuttle rolling through city streets is extremely impressive in person. Pictures don't do it justice. I know, I skipped school years ago to watch the Enterprise roll through the streets of Lancaster Ca. Back then, they didn't have a way to put it on a 747 in Palmdale. So they rolled it to Edwards.
