"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
July 15th, 2012
Could you imagine being up close to a space shuttle? Well, at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City, you will be able to do just that. Enterprise,which was once active as a space shuttle in the 1970s, is going to open for the public on July 19th! Not only are you able to simply view the shuttle from afar, but you are even able to walk up close, view it from the top on the viewing platform, and go inside to see the series of backlit images, texts and video stations.
During the grand opening of the Shape Shuttle Pavilion, there will also be a “SAMSUNG SpaceFest” which will have over 40 interactive displays, activities and exhibitions. This festival will be running from the grand opening on Thursday, July 19 into Sunday, July 22. The festival will have 9 astronauts present, a space travel stimulator, a free screening of the Star-Trek movie, Nasa robotics demonstrations, and other space technology and space travel exhibitions.
This season the museum will be open from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM during the weekdays, but on Saturday and Sunday it will close at 6:00 PM. If you feel like geeking out on modern space technology or simply want to be in awe of the vastness of space, come to the SAMSUNG SpaceFest at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum (46th Street and 12th Avenue) in Manhattan, New York.
