Houston's space shuttle to get new name in contest open to Texans
[i]Florida has Atlantis, California is home to Endeavour, Virginia displays Discovery and New York has Enterprise. Texas has a space shuttle, too — a full-scale, high-fidelity mockup of the NASA winged vehicles — but what the Lone Star State's orbiter doesn't have is a name.
Beginning Thursday (July 4), Space Center Houston will seek Texans' help to correct that by launching its "Name the Shuttle" contest. The official visitor center for NASA's Johnson Space Center, Space Center Houston is looking for an "original name that symbolizes the spirit of Texas and its unique characteristics of independence, optimism and can-do attitude."
...the "Name the Shuttle" contest, which starts at 10:00 a.m. CDT (1500 GMT) on Independence Day, will run through Sept. 2. Beginning on Thursday, Texas residents can visit the website [URL=http://www.NameTheShuttle.com]www.NameTheShuttle.com[/URL] for contest details and to submit their ideas for what to name the orbiter.[/i]
