By
LOS ANGELES—On Oct. 13, before a crowd of tens of thousands, the Endeavour Space Shuttle celebrated its homecoming. Eagle Eyes Optics participated as one of four sponsors in a program to celebrate the shuttle’s historic and final voyage to the California ScienCenter.

Astronaut Colonel Walt Cunningham took center stage on what was also the 44th anniversary of his Apollo 7 mission to address the crowd, “I’ve long maintained an appreciation for technologies developed from NASA that benefit human-kind. Eagle Eyes represent a true example of state-of-the-art space transfer technology.” Eagle Eyes also announced its Endeavour Sunglass Collection to honor the historic ship and the history of space-transfer technology. Endeavour’s last pilot, Greg Johnson, Lost in Space actress June Lockhart and several city and state dignitaries were also present at the event.
