NASA is seeking to sell its three space shuttles when that phase of the manned space program is mothballed in 2010, the Orlando Sentinel is reporting.
The cost of each shuttle will likely be $42 million, plus $6 million for shipping and handling.
I don’t know about this. I saw a space shuttle for sale on Craigslist for only $30 million, and that included shipping and handling.
The idea is to sell the shuttles to museums, but you know there’s going to be some eccentric millionaire or billionaire who’s going to want one for himself. And fly it over your back yard. Geez!
If I had a space shuttle, I’d probably drive it to work. Not fly it, drive it — on the highway. That would one-up all those cocky SUV drivers! “Now who’s hogging the road?”
