The Intrepid Museum unveiled a space shuttle Enterprise model made entirely out of LEGOs on Friday morning during the Museum’s SpaceFest, happening through Sunday, July 28.  The model of space shuttle Enterprise, created by LEGO Master Builder Ed Diment, will only be on display at the Museum during SpaceFest. 

Other activities taking place during SpaceFest on Friday include astronaut presentations from Drs. Ellen Baker and Jeffrey Hoffman; Tour Guide Talks related to space exploration; interactive displays from partners including the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, First Robotics, and the Grove School of Engineering at CCNY; and a free screening of Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) on the Flight Deck. And, of course, the recently reopened Space Shuttle Pavilion, featuring Enterprise, is open for tours, education demonstrations, and astronaut appearances.

As part of the 2nd annual SpaceFest, we’re inviting all museum guests to send us photos from their SpaceFest experience. You can submit photos online or share them on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #SpaceFest, and we will display these photos in an online gallery. And if you participated in last year’s SpaceFest, also feel free to share those pictures!

Current and former astronauts Ellen S. Baker, Charles J. Camarda, Lee M.E. Morin, Jeffrey Hoffman, and Mario Runco, Jr., along with aerospace technician Tim Keyser, are scheduled to be on hand, signing autographs and giving presentations. All activities taking place on Pier 86 are free to the public, while programs and activities inside the Museum and the Space Shuttle Pavilion require purchasing Museum admission. The Intrepid Museum will have extended hours throughout SpaceFest, open 10:00am to 6:00pm from July 25 to 28.

NASA will have an active presence at SpaceFest, and its exhibit, Innovate – Explore – Discover – Inspire, will highlight NASA's missions to understand and protect Planet Earth, conduct research on the International Space Station, extend human reach into deep space, and to explore our solar system and beyond. Check the website for more information about the activities taking place during SpaceFest 2013!
