Space Shuttle Engines

Post by Airconvent »

Here's an image you don't see everyday...a whole row of Daleks...oops..I mean space shuttle engines. I heard the bits and pieces are being spread all over the US. Its a pity we did not get hold of one unit. Even the prototype shuttle Enterprise would look great at the Science Centre but I guess the trekkie friends in the US would protest!.

The cast of Star trek were present at the launch of the space shuttle Enterprise which was generally not space-worthy and used as a test craft as well as spare parts for the active shuttles. The craft was named after appeals from fans...Now we wait for the RSN to name one of our new ships "Enterprise" too. hahaha.
