纽约人民欢迎企业号航天飞机



Under blue skies, a barge bearing the space shuttle prototype Enterprise powered up the Hudson River Wednesday morning, past the New York skyline -- arriving midday at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

Visitors crowded the area around the museum to get a close look at the Enterprise, which never flew in space but was used in landing tests in the 1970s.

“I just remember from my childhood, the shuttles taking off and, now that this is kind of the final resting ground for this one, I’m just very excited to see one up close and personal and to watch the process of loading it onto the Intrepid,” said Nancy de Camp..

“I think it’s an amazing thing that New Yorkers now are going to have this as a piece of history,” said Joe Danziger.

“I think it’s cool that we have the technology to go to space and what we might find out,” said Alejandra Terrero.

“It’s a very really remarkable piece of engineering, the space shuttle, so I really wanted to see that up close,” said Ziad Amin.

“I actually thought it might have been bigger, but I was impressed by the wings on it and just how they built it,and it was really shiny,” said Christopher Lang.

In a delicate operation, a floating crane hoisted the massive spacecraft aloft from the barge and swung it over to land it on the deck of the aircraft carrier Intrepid. That will be its home in retirement -- a lasting memory of the U.S.’s space shuttle program, now ended. The exhibit will open to museum visitors in mid-July.

博物馆周围区域的游客们争相观看,希望一睹企业号的风采,它从未在太空中飞行过但被用在上世纪70年代进行着陆试验。
“我只记得从我的童年,航天飞机起飞而且,现在,这里可以说是它最后的安息之地, 能够如此近距离亲眼看到装卸过程,我感到无比兴奋。”南希•德•坎普说道。
“我认为这是一件令人惊奇的事,纽约人现在要将这一段历史永远铭记。”乔•丹泽格说道。
“我认为这非常酷,我们拥有去宇宙的技术而我们可能会发现什么。”阿雷贾安娜•特鲁洛说道。
“这是一个非常了不起的工程,航天飞机,所以我想非常近距离的看着它。”贾德•安明说道。
“我真的认为这可能会越来越大,但我印象深刻的是,它的机翼及他们如何构建,真的非常有光泽。”克里斯托弗•朗说道。
在一次很精细的操作中,一台浮动起重机从驳船上吊起了巨大的宇宙飞船并最终“着陆”于航母。那将是它退休后的家,一段美国航天飞机项目长久的记忆现在画上了圆满的句号。这个展览将于7月中旬对博物馆游客们开放。
