Are you a space travel enthusiast?
Are you an avid collector of all things NASA?
Or are you just bored and have a huge amount of extra cash burning a hole in your pocket?
Well have I got some good news for you. NASA is having a sale.
For a limited time (that is until they’re gone) you can become the proud owner of your very own space shuttle for the low, low price of $28.2 million.
NASA originally was selling the 1970s era shuttles for $42 million.
Sorry to any Discovery fans, but the Smithsonian already called dibs.
However, the Atlantis and Endeavor are still fair game.
There’s also a chance that the Enterprise, a prototype that never made it to space, will also be for sale (don’t forget to breathe Trekkies).
Now if your only chance of owning one of these pieces of space travel history is to have several hundred of your closest friends pitch in and then all live in the space craft. Don’t worry.
I mean, that’s just not practical. It would inevitably turn in to an endless battle over who was Spock or Captain Kirk. And who wants that?
So, if the shuttles are a little bit out of your price range then you can always get your very own space shuttle main engine.
NASA is literally giving them away. Seriously, they’re free.
You just have to cover shipping and handling. So you may still want to call a few of those several hundred closest friends.
