Space Shuttle Enterprise exhibit collapses in Hurricane Sandy

HOUSTON – The bubble-like housing that protected Space Shuttle Enterprise collapsed overnight as Hurricane Sandy pummeled New York City with wind and rain.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the prototype shuttle itself was damaged.

Photos on Twitter showed Enterprise’s nose and tail exposed with the collapsed housing draped over it.

As of Tuesday morning the shuttle remained exposed to the elements.

The exhibit opened July 19 on the deck of the USS Intrepid.
