The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum opened its Space Shuttle Pavilion to the public on Thursday, July 19, and we were there to witness the reactions of would-be Buzz Aldrins as they caught their first glimpse of the space shuttle Enterprise. (If you weren't there, don't worry—you can check it out during this weekend's SpaceFest!) Click through our slide show to read what local youngsters had to say about the spacecraft and their own cosmic ambitions.
