Once in a while, I come across a photograph that’s so beautifully composed and so rich in narrative that I can’t help but say “I wish I took that.” This photograph, by Getty photographer Kevork Djansezian, is such a one.
The whole bittersweet story is right here in this picture. The traffic, the crowds, the billboards, the smog-tinged orange light and the ridiculous palm trees — this can only be Los Angeles. Space Shuttle Endeavour, originally built as a replacement for Challenger, makes its final journey from LAX to the California Science Center.
This spectacular photo-series from the Atlantic follows Endeavour on the trip: from LAX, past Randy’s Donuts, through South Central, and finally arriving at CSC.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
