Space Shuttle Enterprise Floats To Manhattan Home

Wed, 06/06/2012 - 8:35am

NEW YORK (AP) -- The space shuttle Enterprise is making the final leg of its journey to its new Manhattan home.

The shuttle prototype will travel up the Hudson River on a barge Wednesday, passing the Statue of Liberty and the World Trade Center site before being hoisted by crane onto the flight deck of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

The U.S. space agency, NASA, ended its shuttle program last year.

The shuttle left Kennedy Airport on the barge Sunday morning. It was flown from Washington atop a 747 jet in April.
