Original 1972 space shuttle mockup going on display
[i]Before Columbia launched on the first space shuttle mission over 30 years ago, before Star Trek fans campaigned to rename the prototype shuttle after the Starship Enterprise and even before the last of the Apollo astronauts left their bootprints on the moon, there was a full-size space shuttle in Downey, California.
That mockup, largely overlooked until recently, still exists and is about to go on public display near where it was first built in 1972.[/i]
