Space Shuttel Intrepid
Space shuttle Enterprise, mounted atop a NASA 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, is seen as it takes off for New York from Washington Dulles International Airport, Friday, April 27, 2012, in Sterling, Va. Enterprise was the first shuttle orbiter built for NASA performing test flights in the atmosphere and was incapable of spaceflight. Originally housed at the Smithsonian's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, Enterprise will be placed on a barge that will eventually be moved by tugboat up the Hudson River to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in June.
