Robert (or anyone else), do you know of any plans by the KSC Visitor Complex to produce any kind of program or commemorative book associated with the new Atlantis exhibit? Not sure how soon I'll make it down to Florida, but the whole facility looks spectacular and I'd definitely purchase such a book in the meantime.

The new "Space Shuttle Atlantis" exhibit includes its own dedicated gift shop, so it wouldn't surprise me if some type of program or book is in the planning. The Visitor Complex is pulling together of a number of special commemorative souvenirs to celebrate the opening, some of which will be previewed in an upcoming cS article.

That said, the exhibit is still being completed and so I am not sure if there has been the time or opportunity yet to photograph the display for such a guide. It may be that such a book would come after the exhibit opens, but I can inquire on my next trip (which will be to tour the full exhibit for the first time to produce a virtual [and perhaps video] walk-through for our readers).

All times are CT (US)
