Who Got the Space Shuttles?!

Enterprise Shuttle on display at the Smithsonian

Here’s the rundown:

Discovery, NASA’s oldest remaining orbiter and the world’s most flown spacecraft, is going to the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. No surprise there.

Endeavour will be given to the California Science Center after a final launch later this month.

Atlantis will remain in Florida, at the Kennedy Space Center.

But just wait! There’s a bonus! The Smithsonian will be using the Discovery to replace a shuttle prototype already in its possession, the Enterprise. And guess who gets the Enterprise!? New York’s very own Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum!
