Nasa's Shuttle Enterprise has been moved to a new home in New York

Nasa's shuttle Enterprise has gone on display to the public in New York.

The aircraft - which has a wingspan of 78 foot (24 metres) - was completed in 1976.

It was originally going to be called Constitution but Star Trek fans won a campaign to call it Enterprise after the spaceship in the TV programme.

Although it was never intended to go into space, Enterprise performed important test flights within the Earth's atmosphere.

It used to be on display at the National Air and Space Museum in Virginia but has been moved because the shuttle Discovery that was retired in 2011 is there now instead.
