Trees must fall to make way for space shuttle’s L.A. Road trip

LOS ANGELES, Sept 19: The space shuttle Endeavour always had plenty of elbow room while soaring around Earth. But to make way for its slow 19-km journey through city streets next month to its final destination at a Los Angeles museum, some trees must fall. Clearing an unobstructed route for the retired spaceship to take from Los Angeles International Airport to the California Science Center will require cutting down nearly 400 trees in all, and the temporary removal of hundreds of utility poles, street lights and traffic signals, officials say.
