Space shuttle replica headed for Houston Somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico a massive consolation prize for the Houston Moncler Women Down Coats Zip Leading Wind Black region is on a barge, destined to take its place at the next to storied artifacts such as the Saturn V rocket. A full size 123 foot space shuttle replica set sail Thursday from the in Florida and is due to arrive at the barge dock June 1 after an eight day voyage across the Gulf. The detailed replica, known Moncler Women Down Jacket Branson Doudoune as the Explorer, was acquired by Space Center Houston the museum in 2010 as Houston area officials fought with NASA over its decision to give the retired shuttles to cities most frequented by tourists instead of cities that are connected with the space program like Houston, which managed the shuttle program for three decades. But unlike those who tour the real thing, the public will be able to enter the Explorer s cockpit and mid deck as well as look into the payload bay. The replica was built using schematics, blueprints and archived documents lent by NASA and shuttle contractors. The Explorer has been on display at the NASA spaceport s visitor center in Florida for 18 years. But transporting the behemoth mockup is proving to be a logistical challenge. Bridge closure planned The Seabrook Kemah Bridge will have to be closed for about 30 minutes beginning about noon June 1 until the barge and the 54 foot tall replica pass through into the Clear Lake Channel, Seabrook spokeswoman said. She explained that the bridge closure is to prevent people from stopping or standing on the bridge to see the Explorer. The barge and replica together are 67 feet tall and will barely clear the bridge, said Jr., Space Center Houston president. As the replica is expected to turn drivers heads on its way to the barge dock, Seabrook s Dearman said law enforcement agencies from across the area will be contributing officers to make sure traffic keeps moving on roads adjacent to the Clear Lake Channel. "The barge dock was used in the 60s and 70s to move big pieces of Moncler 2012 Women 0045 spacecraft and hardware used in the training and development of the Gemini and Apollo programs," explained of , which is organizing events surrounding the arrival of the replica. The last time the dock was used was to receive the Saturn V rocket now on display at the Space Center, he said. The 36 story rocket put Apollo 8 astronauts in orbit around the moon in 1968. Open house planned Carr said it would take a full day to lift the replica off the barge with special equipment and weld it onto a transporter. The transporter will take about three hours to move about a mile to the Space Center on June 3. Treetops were trimmed along the route to make way for the 78 foot wing span, and traffic light arms at three intersections will be swung out of the way, Dearman said. The Explorer will be placed on a newly poured concrete pad at Space Center Houston that is part of $3 million to be spent on the shuttle exhibit, Allen said. The center is $1.8 million short of raising the full $3 million, he said. Partygoers will park at the Johnson Space Center parking lot and be taken by tram to an open space between the barge dock, at 3000 NASA Parkway, and the Hilton NASA Clear Lake Hotel, according to , spokeswoman for Griffin Communications. Interactive exhibits from the JSC, such as an astronomer s telescope and a new rocket being developed by NASA, will be available, Wren said.
