Videographer Matthew Givot has documented the landing of NASA's Mission 26 Endeavour, the most recent high tech vehicle to explore space. Endeavor did 4671 orbits around earth, relaying vital data to the scientific quarters.

Givot uses time-lapse features to capture the highly anticipated descent of Endeavour. The shuttle touched down in the busy street of Los Angeles, prompting crowds of residents to gather alongside the streets as the plane traveled over bridges and main roads.

Signs that read "Welcome home" and "Endeavor home" celebrated the arrival of Mission 26 and its team. The montage puts an everyday human spin on the precise research-based enterprise, displaying run down strip malls and fast food shops in the background. The artistic direction gets at L.A.'s grungy, eclectic spirit.
