A NASA space shuttle prototype and high-fidelity shuttle replica will make some big moves in New York and Houston on Sunday, and residents in both cities have a chance to spot the winged spacecraft — one by sea and the other by land.
While New Yorkers will get to see Enterprise sailing on a barge, the sight of a space shuttle on the water is one some Houston residents have already seen. The space shuttle replica Explorer arrived at a dock in Houston's Clear Lake on Friday, and on Sunday the shuttle will parade its way from the lake to Space Center Houston, a visitor's center for NASA's Johnson Space Center. NASA's Texas facility serves as the home of the agency's astronaut corps and its mission control center for the International Space Station.
