I was so happy to see that Atlantis will stay right here at the Kennedy Space Center. I was a little annoyed that they were saying how we possibly wouldnt get one. I know I am proud of the space program here and I know many others who are as well. It will be nice to have one here that you can go see! Finally I will get to see one. I was hoping for Discovery here but it will be at the Smithsonian.

Ok so here is will they will all end up.

Discovery



The Discovery, which completed its final flight last month, is headed to the Smithsonian, for display at the spacious Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Washington Dulles International Airport.


Endeavour



The Endeavour, currently on the launching pad for its final space trip, will go to the California Science Center.


Atlantis



The Atlantis, scheduled for its last mission in June, will go to the Kennedy visitor complex.


Enterprise



The Enterprise, which was used for early glide tests but was never sent into orbit, will now go the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in Manhattan.

Currently the Enterprise is at the Smithsonian but with Discovery going there they don't need two so Enterprise will have a new home.

No one ever said they were stopping. The shuttle is ending, they are going to make a new type of shuttle.

This is not the first time that NASA has been without a manned spaceflight vehicle for a few years. This is also not the first time that a comet has made a relatively close approach to earth (indeed, even Hartley 2 last year was closer). It's not the end of the world, it's just another comet.

Agreed!

Many people though seem to automatically think they are just done. I hear it all the time and I live by the Kennedy Space Center. You would think people would know more but they don't. They shuttles are old and they need new ones that is basically all it is. I look forward to the new one, hopefully by then I can help assist with those since I will have my degree then.

Found this via FB and thought I would add it to this thread for those who might be interested.

This is what they plan on doing with Atlantis when it is finally set up at the KSC here in Cape Canaveral. I so can't wait ot see this display.
