Endeavour Fest | David Knight Executive Producer of “Three Nights,Three Days”

Oct 16, 2013

October 11-13 was the one year celebration in commemorating the Space Shuttle Endeavour’s historic arrival at the California Science Center – Endeavour Fest. QGITS had the chance to meet with David Knight Entrepreneur and Executive Producer of the film “Three Nights,Three Days” who was there speaking at the event after his movie screening featured in the Shuttle Pavilion. The film is an incredible documentary that takes a behind-the-scenes look at the monumental feat of moving Endeavour through the streets of Los Angeles. David Knight has been a frequent participant in high-tech startups, an early executive of the XPrize Foundation, most recently a board member of the California Science Center, heading a film effort documenting the journey of the Space Shuttle Endeavour and the new space industry going forward. In addition, he is committed to providing STEAM education for youth of all ages. In this interview David Knight talks about Endeavour’s epic journey and what’s new to come at the California Science Center for Endeavour.

The  compelling film of the Space Shuttle Endeavour’s final journey follows the shuttle as it flies over Los Angeles – transported on top of a NASA Boeing 747 shuttle carrier aircraft – before landing at Los Angeles International Airport and taken on its 12-mile, three-day voyage to the Science Center with a cheering crowd of over 1.5 million who lined the route. The Space Shuttle Endeavour flew 25 missions into space, deployed three satellites and orbited Earth 4,671 times. Mission 26 refers to its final journey through the streets of Inglewood and Los Angeles to its permanent home at the Science Center’s Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Endeavour Display Pavilion, where it will inspire future generations of scientists, innovators and engineers.
