For the past few days, I've been seeing so many tweets from people thrilled to see the Space Shuttle Endeavour fly by. I'm sad to see the end of the shuttle program, but happy the Endeavour is coming to Southern California to live at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.
122 million miles traveled on 25 missions. Pretty amazing. Its last 12 miles will be driving through the streets of Los Angeles. And the last little bit into the Science Center? It will be towed by a Toyota Tundra. Yes, a truck just like you can get from your local dealer. CRAZY.
Here's a video: [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSMT2Y6OMg0?rel=0&w=560&h=315]
That's cool, but even cooler is that Toyota is donating $50 to the Science Center (up to half a million bucks) for every time someone tweets:
Toyota Tundra tows Space Shuttle Endeavour on 10/13. Tweet to raise $50 for @CAScienceCenter. #TundraEndeavour
That's the kind of thing that makes it worthwhile for me to work with Toyota!
