Space Shuttle Debate Heats Up!


Things are heating up in anticipation of NASAs allocation of three decommissioned space shuttles next week. And things are dirty. Other museums hoping to get a shuttle have been are hatin’ on New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum.

From the New York Daily News:

“You don’t have the astronauts, we do,” said Evelyn Husband Thompson, who pushed Houston’s case in the shuttle sweepstakes as the home of “Mission Control” – and home base for most of the astronauts and their families.

The bottom line is that putting a space shuttle in New York City “would be like us doing a tribute to Broadway,” Thompson said.

Well, now, retorted Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand: “With all due respect, there is no reason why one of the shuttles should not land in New York City, the cultural and economic capital of our nation.”

The Intrepid REALLY wants one of those shuttles. They even have an online petition. Good luck!
