Space Shuttle Enterprise is Encased in Inflatable Shelter at NYC Museum according to Space.com. Two weeks after “landing” on top of the aircraft carrier-turned-Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City, NASA’s prototype space shuttle Enterprise is now underneath the inflatable canopy that will house its public display. The Intrepid, which is docked on Manhattan’s west side, is a retired World War II aircraft carrier used since 1982 to house aerospace and maritime exhibits.

Honoring Veterans in New Orleans

The story of the American experience in the World War II changed with the June 2000 opening of the World War II Museum in New Orleans. Located at 945 Magazine Street in New Orleans, the World War II Museum is the “only museum in the United States that addresses all of the D-Day invasions of World War II, paying tribute to the more than one million Americans who took part”.

On Nov. 6, 2009, a $60 million dollar addition to the museum was unveiled to the public. The new building, one of four to be added to the museum by 2015, contains three new attractions: the Solomon Victory Theater, the State Door Canteen and the American Sector Restaurant. The three day festivities entitled, “Experience the Victory,” was dubbed to reference and honor not only the veterans, but the revitalization of the culture and tourism in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.

The Greater New Orleans Veterans Council and the Military Order of the Purple Heart will be holding a Veterans Day celebration in downtown New Orleans beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the National WWII Museum, followed by the annual Veterans Day parade beginning at 11 a.m. on Sugar Bowl Drive in front of the Superdome.
