NASA Space Shuttles Go On Sale—At A Discount : You can own an actual Space Shuttle.
Here’s a recession bargain: the space shuttle. NASA has slashed the price of these 1970s era spaceships from $42 million to $28.8 million apiece. The shuttles are for sale once they quit flying, supposedly this fall.
When NASA put out the call to museums, schools and others in December 2008, seeking buyers, about 20 expressed interest. NASA spokesman Mike Curie expects more interest, what with the discount.
