The Space Picture of the Day Isn’t from Outer Space

Posted by Alan at 3:27 PM on April 27, 2012

This morning the space shuttle Enterprise made what was likely its final flight, but this time it was on the back of a 747.  After several delays the shuttle finally took off from Washington DC, where it had been housed at the Smithsonian museum, and headed to New York City and it’s new home at Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.

As the 747 and it’s passenger passed over the Big Apple, NASA photographer Bill Ingalls captured what could be one of the most iconic space shuttle images ever when he snapped a shot of the shuttle, mounted on the top of the 747, as the pair passed the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building.

The Enterprise will officially go on display at it’s new home on July 19th.  Meanwhile, the space shuttle Discovery has replaced Enterprise at the Smithsonian’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.
