WTF of the Day! 400 Trees Cut Down To Make Way For Space Shuttle

So they can get the Space Shuttle into outer Space, dodging satellites, space junk, and rocks, but they can’t figure out how to get around some trees!

From the LATimes:

Space shuttle Endeavour’s final 12-mile journey through the streets of South Los Angeles [ to the The California Science Center ] already promises to be a meticulously planned spectacle: a two-day parade, an overnight slumber party in Inglewood and enough hoopla to create a giant traffic mess.

But for some residents in South L.A., the excitement of the shuttle rumbling through their neighborhoods quickly faded when they learned that 400 trees will be chopped down to make room for the behemoth.

Are you freakin’ kidding me? They couldn’t figure out a better way? I can’t believe a “Science Center” would even agree to that…
