[i]NASA selected the Kennedy Visitor Complex for placement of Atlantis.
After Atlantis returned from its final mission on July 21, 2011, NASA began the after-mission processing and "safing" preparation activities and plans to complete all processing activities required for display by September 2012. Atlantis will then be stored in Kennedy's Vehicle Assembly Building until February 2013, with tour-group viewing opportunities during that period.
The Visitor Complex is currently negotiating with Kennedy Space Center officials for an additional storage period at a suitable Center facility until the permanent display facility is ready.
As currently planned, Atlantis will be moved to its permanent facility in February 2013 and will be ready for permanent display in July 2013. The Visitor Complex plans to display Atlantis in a raised, tilted, horizontal position in its permanent facility.
The Visitor Complex submitted its logistics plan on August 5, 2011. The exhibit and finance plans are due by the end of August 2011, and initial funding is due in February 2012.[/i]
