[i]NASA waved off last month revealing where its soon-to-be-retired space shuttles will be making their final landing for public exhibit.
Delayed launch dates, coupled with congressional acts -- including bills proposing adding at least one more mission to the two remaining for the 30-year shuttle program -- resulted in the space agency postponing its selection of museums where its winged orbiters will go on display. A July announcement had been expected since January of this year, when NASA made a last call for suitors.
"They haven't established a new date," NASA spokesman Mike Curie told collectSPACE. "Because of delays to the manifest, shifting STS-133 to November and STS-134 to February, the announcement was also delayed."[/i]
