Time Warner Cable Declared Official Sponsor of Space Shuttle Enterprise's Arrival, New Home in NYC

By Raju Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor

The Space Shuttle Enterprise was the first Space Shuttle orbiter, built for NASA as part of the Space Shuttle program. The module performed test flights in the atmosphere, and was developed without engines or a functional heat shield, and was hence incapable of spaceflight.

On September 17, 1976, the first full scale prototype was completed.

Recently, The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum selected Time Warner (News - Alert) Cable as an official sponsor of Space Shuttle Enterprise's 2012 arrival into New York City, and of its Space Shuttle Pavilion home currently being built on top of the museum's flight deck.

Intrepid Museum has been named a signature partner in New York City for Time Warner Cable's Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) program and Time Warner Cable is now a sponsor of Intrepid Museum.

Allowing students to help America successfully compete in a global economy, CAMM is an initiative that inspires students to acquire skills in science, technology, engineering and math to become the problem solvers of tomorrow.

"Time Warner Cable is honored to sponsor the historical journey of the Enterprise to its new home on the USS Intrepid,” said Glenn Britt, Chairman and CEO at Time Warner Cable. “The American space program has led to some of the most exciting innovations of our time. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to show our continued commitment to inspiring the next generation of problem solvers by connecting young people to the wonders of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).”

TMC’s (News - Alert) Jamie Epstein recently reported that the company will be bringing streaming television functionality to Android devices by the spring. The company had introduced a beta version of the streaming video service, named TWC TV, expected to increase the level of entertainment accessibility by letting customers watch videos while sitting in front of their computers.
