Space shuttle Enterprise

In a ceremony held at the Kennedy Space Center today, NASA’s Administrator Charlie Bolden announced where all the space shuttles that have taken their final flights will go to rest. In addition to announcing the resting places of the shuttles, they commemorated the 30th anniversary of the first shuttle flight. The space shuttle Discovery will be placed in the National Air and Space Museum just outside Washington DC. The Enterprise that is currently in the Udvar-Hazy Center will be moved to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York. The Endeavour will be placed in the California Science Center in LA after it returns from its final flight which it will take in a couple of weeks. The space shuttle Atlantis will be placed in the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando after its last flight that will take place in June. After Atlantis’ last flight, NASA won’t be holding anymore trips to the International Space Station on their own but instead they’ll have to rely on other nations or private companies with their own space ships.
