Good episode? Give it some love!
The nation’s first air show went up, up and away in LA before World War I, and here, the space shuttle made its last trip—on the ground.

Now the past is prologue, as the same SoCal ingenuity launches Space X satellites, and missions to Mars. It’s out of this world!
