Discovery Is Coming to Virginia!

Hey Space Placers!

NASA made its announcement about where the 4 shuttles are going:

  • Shuttle Enterprise, the first orbiter built, will move from the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York.

  • The Udvar-Hazy Center will become the new home for shuttle Discovery, which retired after completing its 39th mission in March.

  • Shuttle Endeavour, which is preparing for its final flight at the end of the month will go to the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

  • Shuttle Atlantis, which will fly the last planned shuttle mission in June, will be displayed at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor’s Complex in Florida

Not everyone was happy about the selections as some cities were left empty. I am pretty sure that the shuttles will go where they have been selected to go.
