Space shuttle Enterprise's new home taking shape at New York City's Intrepid
[i]Space shuttle Enterprise, NASA's test orbiter that first arrived in New York City one year ago this month, is soon to have a new home.
As aerial photographs taken on Friday (April 26) show, the construction of a new exhibition pavilion is taking shape above and around and prototype space shuttle on board the flight deck of the Intrepid, Sea, Air & Space Museum, a converted World War II aircraft carrier that is docked on the west side of Manhattan.
"The one-year anniversary of Enterprise's arrival in New York City was an exciting milestone for the museum and everyone whose imagination is captured by manned space flight," a spokesperson for the Intrepid said in a statement provided to collectSPACE. "We are currently completing the framework of the new Space Shuttle Pavilion that will serve as the home to the Enterprise exhibit."
"We will soon be installing the outer skin of the structure, then completing the interior, in time for the opening this summer," the spokesperson said.[/i]
