Shuttle Shuffle
How will NASA's three remaining space shuttles make it to their new homes? By Lester Reingold
Comments () | Published April 16, 2012

NASA's three remaining space shuttles--Discovery, Endeavour, and Atlantis--have retired and will soon go to museums or visitor centers across the country. Delivering the shuttles to their new homes is like a game of musical chairs. As part of the reshuffling, Enterprise, which has been on display at the National Air and Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Center near Dulles Airport, will move to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City. Discovery will move from Florida's Kennedy Space Center to take its place at Udvar-Hazy.
