The Soyuz was transported via the ship's Portside Aircraft Elevator, an open-air platform that raised the capsule to the flight deck, while media and Intrepid Museum staff members watched from the flight deck. The capsule returned Olsen, one of the few private citizens to experience space travel, back to Earth in October 2005 after he traveled to the International Space Station.

The new Space Shuttle Pavilion, which replaces the original structure that was damaged by Hurricane Sandy, is currently being constructed around Enterprise and will be completed over the coming weeks. Visitors will still be able to walk underneath Enterprise, which sits 10 feet off of the ground, view Enterprise from a larger observation platform, and view a film narrated by actor Leonard Nimoy.
