Fluorescent light isn’t going away and when designed properly it can create amazing effects light this one for the space shuttle Enterprise exhibit.
The Space Shuttle Enterprise is seen at a press preview of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s new Space Shuttle Pavilion on July 18, 2012 in New York City.
The Enterprise was NASA’s first space shuttle and a prototype which performed tests in 1977 within the Earth’s atmosphere.
NASA awarded the Enterprise to the museum after the 2011 retirement of the shuttle program. The pavilion will open to the public July 19.

Rolling Down The Hudson:
A flotilla surrounds the NASA space shuttle Enterprise as it is carried by barge past the Statue of Liberty up the Hudson River on route to its permanent home at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum on June 06, 2012 in New York City.
The Enterprise, only used for atmospheric testing, will be hoisted by crane onto the flight deck of the retired Intrepid aircraft carrier. The Enterprise’s original move-in date was Tuesday but bad weather had delayed preparation work.

The Space Shuttle Enterprise is on the closing leg of its journey to its final resting place. For now, it’s taking a pit stop of sorts atop the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier in New York City before being transported from this temporary home to a space more befitting of its grand size. Still, after watching NASA’s first shuttle fly across the skies of New York aboard a 747 before being ferried up the river to her current home, we couldn’t help but visit and get a close look of the spaceship for ourselves. Enterprise is currently housed in what looks quite a bit like an inflatable indoor tennis court that’s called the Space Shuttle Pavilion — right at the stern of the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum. The “tent” is all blue inside and rather bare, but that’s not a problem as it puts all of the attention on the Space Shuttle.
