Enterprise exhibit: NYC's Intrepid museum showcasing space shuttle's legacy
[i]A new museum exhibit that reveals the history of NASA's original space shuttle is opening in New York City this week, just as the prototype orbiter is being put under cover.
"Space Shuttle Enterprise: A Pioneer," a new exhibition that explores the history of Enterprise and its role in the development of the space shuttle, will debut to the public on Thursday (Jan. 17) at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue) in Manhattan.
The temporary display is hosted on the hangar deck of the converted U.S.S. Intrepid, a World War II aircraft carrier. The exhibit celebrates the people, the pilots and engineers who contributed to the orbiter's story, as well as made the technological innovations that helped to make Enterprise an icon of the space program.[/i]
