No need to worry if your family hasn't had a chance to see the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s "Space Shuttle Enterprise: A Pioneer" exhibit, which closes on Sunday, June 16. In just a few weeks, you’ll be able to come back to see the Enterprise itself—the original NASA orbiter—at the new Space Shuttle Pavilion, which is reopening on July 10 following the museum’s recovery from Hurricane Sandy. Kids will get to see the Enterprise in its new home—still ten feet overhead, but a different pavilion entirely from the one we reported on when it opened in 2012—and now they can also see the Russian Soyuz space capsule, learn more about the space shuttle program from demonstrations and new exhibits, and hear audio between NASA control and Enterprise astronauts as they take a stroll through the soundscape entryway.
