Shuttle2NYC Petition Campaign Reaches 100,000 Signatures

Jun 01, 2010 - 11:13am petition campaign passed the 100,000 signature milestone on Memorial Day at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. Cathy Connolly of Mahopac, NY, who was joined by her sons Sean Connolly (13) and Louie Cucolo (12), was the 100,000th person to sign the petition to help bring a NASA Space Shuttle to New York City. To celebrate the milestone, the family had a special meet and greet with former NASA Astronaut and national icon Buzz Aldrin and received a special Intrepid gift bag.

A man and woman read an exhibit panel on Intrepid's flight deck while their child points at the propeller of an aircraft.
