Shuttle Enterprise Lands in NYC in April
NASA’s shuttle Enterprise, which never flew in space but did pave the way for the United States’ shuttle program, will arrive in New York City on April 23.
The prototype orbiter will be on display at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. Enterprise, had been on display, since 2003 at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Virginia.
“We are immensely excited about Enterprise’s landing at JFK, and are readying the Intrepid for her arrival,” Susan Marenoff-Zausner, museum president, stated. “Introducing Enterprise to New York is a landmark occasion.”
“[Its touchdown] marks the beginning of Enterprise’s next mission, which is to inspire a new generation of scientists, engineers and researchers and serve as a reminder that anything is possible,” Marenoff-Zausner said.
