In the early days of NASA's Space Shuttle program, the spaceships landed at Edwards. Later in the program, landings took place primarily at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. In this archival Air Force photograph, "The first Space Shuttle orbiter, Enterprise, arrived at Edwards AFB on January 31, 1977. It had been moved via road at 3 mph from Rockwell International's assembly facility at Palmdale, (Calif.) aboard a 90-wheel transporter. The unpowered version of the Shuttle was housed at (NASA's) Dryden Flight Research Center in preparation for a series of ground, captive- and free-flight tests prior to the space launch program."
