So Who Wants to Buy a Space Shuttle?

NASA is making plans for the American Space Shuttles once they are retired in a couple of years. So anyone want to buy a Space Shuttle? You'll only need about $50 million and a climate controlled area to display it. NASA is talking to several museums and schools about showcasing one of the 3 shuttles. Thankfully, one of the shuttles will be headed to the Smithsonian Institution's Air And Space Museum in Washington DC. The other 2 are fair game.

Now if you don't want a Space about one of the main engines? They will only set you back a half million a piece or so...and that doesn't inclide shipping costs. Plans are to retire the Space Shuttle in September 2010, but word is Barack Obama's administration could decide to push that date back.
