Shuttle Enterprise Makes Final Voyage

A space shuttle being towed through a river is not something you see every day, even in New York. The space shuttle Enterprise made its final journey on Wednesday as it was towed through the Hudson River to its future home, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. The shuttle had been housed in a New Jersey shipyard since Sunday, after being towed across the New York harbor to Kennedy Airport. Originally scheduled for Tuesday, the trip was delayed due to inclement weather—and the shuttle sustained some minor damage on Sunday when its right wing grazed a railroad bridge. The shuttle exhibit will open in mid-July.
