NASA announces final homes for retired space shuttles
On April 12, 1981, NASA Launched the first space shuttle. Now 30 years later NASA has announced the final homes for the retired space shuttle fleet. At least 21 museums across the country were vying to receive one of the shuttles. Today at the Kennedy Space Center, NASA said the shuttle Discovery, which is the most traveled shuttle, will go to the Smithsonian Museum. Right now the museum has The Enterprise, a practice shuttle which has never flown in space…that will move to the Intrepid museum in New York City. The shuttle Endeavor, which is targeted for its final launch later this month, will go to the California Science Center in Los Angeles. The last shuttle to make its final flight, Atlantis, will stay in the visitors complex at Kennedy Space Center, where all the shuttles were launched.
