American Scene: After stop at airport, shuttle goes to sea
Question of the Day
NEW YORK — The prototype space shuttle that arrived in New York City by air earlier this spring is on the move again, this time by sea.
The Enterprise had been parked at John F. Kennedy International Airport since it flew from Washington to New York atop a 747 jet.
The shuttle was placed on a barge Saturday and readied for a slow journey through the harbor to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum on Manhattan’s West Side.
The barge was on its way Sunday across New York Harbor to Port Elizabeth, N.J.
Then, on Tuesday, a tugboat is to move the Enterprise to the Intrepid, a decommissioned aircraft carrier.
Plans are in place for a floating crane to lift the spacecraft onto the flight deck.
Five bodies found in burned SUV
An Arizona sheriff said five bodies found burned beyond recognition inside the shell of a charred SUV were likely the result of drug cartel violence.
The bodies and vehicle were found in the Vekol Valley, a rugged, mountainous desert area that’s a well-known smuggling corridor for drugs and illegal immigrants headed from Mexico to Phoenix and the U.S. interior.
The bodies were so badly burned that investigators couldn’t immediately determine their gender or ethnicity. While it’s unclear whether the victims were from Mexico, the sheriff’s office has notified the Mexican Consulate.
A Border Patrol agent first spotted the white Ford Expedition driving at around 4:30 a.m.
The vehicle disappeared despite an effort by federal and local authorities to track it down. Why the vehicle first drew attention from authorities is unclear.
At daybreak, an agent spotted tracks leading from Interstate 8 into the desert. The vehicle that left the tracks had apparently launched off the highway, going airborne for a short distance before landing in the desert. The tracks continued for a couple of miles.
