The space shuttle Enterprise – named after the spaceship in Star Trek – floated past the Statue of Liberty and One World Trade Center on a barge on Wednesday and docked near its new home at a museum on New York’s Hudson River.
Crowds of people turned out to see the retired spacecraft make its final approach to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum where it was placed on display atop the World War II aircraft carrier USS Intrepid.
