In 1977, NASA conducted a series of tests on a new type of craft: the Space Shuttle Enterprise. Now, that prototype resides on the deck of the Intrepid in a specially designed pavilion. Visitors can walk close to and under the 180-foot-long, six-story Shuttle, the wingspan of which is more than 70 feet. Meanwhile, multimedia displays, images and artifacts will tell the story of space exploration and the Enterprise’s role in it.
