Good question! It was in storage until the space hangar opened at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. And after it came to our , Enterprise continued to be a test bed for NASA. Preservation specialists worked to clean and restore its appearance before it went on view.

Hi, there isn’t a formal Smithsonian system that we know of for the public, but we encourage the idea of recycling and repurposing! We'd suggest getting in touch with a local museum or historical society.

It's not a painting, it's a piece of petrified wood in our 's collection. Silica-rich groundwater permeated the wood with fine-grained quartz. Impurities in the quartz (like iron and carbon) produce colors in the petrified wood.
