The Space Shuttle Enterprise is finally in its new (temporary) home, housed on the Flight Deck of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. The Space Shuttle Pavilion will open to the public today around 2 p.m., following an opening ceremony and ribbon cutting at 11 a.m.—but we got a look inside yesterday, before the big storm rolled in and canceled the evening's celebratory concert.
Click through for a little look inside, where the highlight is most definitely the shuttle itself (even if you can't go inside of it—we asked). Aside from that, there are movies and photographs, but not too much else on display—but maybe more will be added when the shuttle has a permanent home (and maybe Tom Sachs should team up with the Intrepid).
Want to go kick her tires around? There will be a "SpaceFest" going on all weekend, where you'll be able to stand in awe of the ship, as well as meet astronauts Jeffrey Hoffman, Garrett Reisman, Kevin Kregel, Ellen Baker, Mario Runco, Jr., Charles Camarda, Michael Massimino, Karol Bobko and Lee Morin. There will also be a screening of Star-Trek on the Flight Deck on Friday at 7:30 p.m.; NASA robotics demonstrations; Space travel simulators; and more.
