Intrepid Museum Gets Shuttle Enterprise

Posted by JayZeeBMT on Tue Apr 12 11:09:36 2011

NASA has awarded the Space Shuttle Enterprise (OV-099) to the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in Manhattan, officials announced today. The decision was made following a long campaign by Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand to bring a Shuttle to New York City as a historical exhibit. The Enterprise was famously named for the fictional starship of the Star Trek television series and movies, and although it was a test article which never went into orbit, it is identical to all of the later Orbiters that flew into space.

A delivery date has not yet been announced.
