For those who cannot imagine something as huge as the space shuttle Endeavour tooling down the streets of Los Angeles, there is now a computer-generated 3D video animation of what the two-day, 12-mile adventure will look like.

Nicknamed "Mission 26" and "The Big Endeavour" by the California Science Center, the shuttle will leave LAX on Thursday night and make its way through Inglewood and South L.A. until it's parked near USC.

In the short video produced by David Evans and Associates, we can see how bizarre "The Mother of Parades" (as L.A.'s Mayor is calling it) will look creeping along the boulevards next to the Forum and other landmarks around South L.A.  (Story continues below video window.)

If you plan on seeing the once-in-a-lifetime event, here's the map of the route:
