The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration is checking to see if some folks would like to own a space shuttle. I IM’d Mrs. Sixty sitting next to me about owning one and am awaiting her reply. The "buy it now" price is $48 million, including shipping and handling.
This is the first time NASA is asking to be paid for retired flight junk. But times are tough. The shuttles will be delivered intact, but stripped, so delivery is by 747 piggyback. Main engines are not included, so the photos here are only representative samples and may vary from actual delivery. The price quotes are subject to availability and strictly limited to quantities on hand at time of sale. Any prior utterances are null and void. Kim Jung-il need not apply.
Update: Mrs. Sixty said OK. If I live in it. And it is operable.
