[b]Space Center Houston launches website to support bid for a retired space shuttle[/b]
NASA will be retiring its fleet of space shuttles within the next year. Once NASA completes its last shuttle mission, these three Orbiters will be decommissioned and placed on permanent display at selected museums or science centers across the United States. The competition is stiff. We know that one will go to the National Air and Space Museum's Udvar Hazy Center thereby leaving only two vehicles for the more than 15 locations, including [URL=http://www.spacecenter.org/]Space Center Houston[/URL], that are vying for an Orbiter.
Time is of the essence; your help influencing key decision makers is immediately needed. You can support Space Center Houston's acquisition initiative by visiting [URL=http://www.bringtheshuttlehome.com/]bringtheshuttlehome.com[/URL]. Here, you can send a letter to your congressmen, senators and President Barack Obama urging them to select Space Center Houston to receive a retired Space Shuttle. Let them know, the right home for one of these orbiters is the very epicenter of human spaceflight - Houston, Texas.
