The California Science Center is the home of the now retired Space Shuttle Endeavour.

Unless you’ve had a chance to see one up close, it’s hard to describe just how majestic a bird she is and how awe inspiring it is to get almost within touching distance of one of these amazing machines.

Along with the normal shots that everyone takes, I tried to take some pictures that capture some of the sleek lines and engineering perfection that make Endeavour such a marvelous thing to behold.

There are also a couple of shots in here of strange ports and holes that I had never seen before along with instructions for aliens on how to get the crew out if she should crash on a strange world.
