Today, Space Shuttle Enterprise is making its way up the Hudson River towards the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. If you're on the west side of Manhattan, you might have caught a glimpse, otherwise you can see a snippet of the journey, which was rather fantastic, in the above video.


Though Enterprise didn't exactly make it unscathed—the barge driver smashed part of a wing into the side of a dock—this clip is the kind of thing that makes you feel a little patriotic. You've got a beast of American space exploration floating along, framed by the New York City skyline, passing by the Statue of Liberty. It is undeniable awesome, meaning now would be the appropriate time to wave your flag, drink your Bud, hop in your Chevy, and cue the theme to Team America. [NoCommentTV]
