[b]Shuttle Naming Contest[/b]
Be a part of Downey's history by helping to name the City's very own Space Shuttle Mock-Up, currently on display at Downey Studios, 12214 Lakewood Blvd.
The Space Shuttle Mock-up is owned by the City of Downey and has the distinction of not only being the first full-size Space Shuttle ever built, but it was used for two decades for detailed engineering fittings and testing. The full scale Mock-up has remained in storage for decades and the City hopes to preserve and restore the Shuttle by building a permanent facility for the model. The new Shuttle building would be adjacent to the Columbia Memorial Space Center, the City's own hands-on learning center dedicated to teaching children about science and space exploration. History is in the making so be a part of this amazing time in the City of Downey by submitting a potential name for this historic Shuttle.
