It took the space shuttle Endeavour nearly three days to make the "drive" from Los Angeles International Airport to its new home at the California Science Center October 12 to 14, but thanks to this beautiful time-lapse video, you can see the journey in under three minutes.

Even if you did get to see Endeavour cruise the streets of L.A. and Inglewood (at a snail's pace at times), this is a great chance to catch "Mission 26" from a different perspective. It's pretty damn cool to see the spacecraft pass in front of places like Randy's Donuts and the Forum, or wiggle side to side to avoid bumping into trees in one neighborhood, or be tugged by a Toyota Tundra for a portion of the ride.
