No Tulsa Shuttle
Undated – CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) New York City will be the new home of space shuttle Enterprise, the prototype shuttle used for test flights more than three decades ago.
Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand said Tuesday that Enterprise will go to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.
Enterprise has been on display at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum in Washington. But NASA plans to send shuttle Discovery to the Smithsonian once the shuttle program ends this summer.
