Starship Enterprise

By Linda Tancs

According to the law of gravity, what comes up must come down.  After the shuttering of the shuttle space program, Enterprise (NASA’s original orbiter) made its way to The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City in a highly publicized series of movements involving a specially outfitted 747 and a barge procession past the Hudson River’s most iconic landmarks.  The shuttle and its pavilion have been temporarily closed following damage from storm Sandy, but don’t miss the opportunity to visit this gem of the space program when it reopens shortly.  Enterprise has been added to the National Register of Historic Places as of March 13, 2013, the first orbiter to receive such recognition.
