    Fire Free NASA Space Shuttle Engine

    Mostly for your amusement:

    Canít scrape together nearly $29 million, but still want a taste of outer space? You can now get an actual engine from the shuttle for free, as long as you cover the costs of moving and housing the eight-foot-diameter, four-ton behemoths. The AP reported on Saturday that NASA tried to sell them for $400,000 to $800,000 apiece in December 2008, but got no offers and is now literally giving them away.

    For sale: Space shuttles, slightly used, bargain price! ? Fedline - The Federal Times Blog - federal news, government operations, agency management, pay & benefits


    What's the catch? It's up to you the taker to safely bring them home and house them . . .
    ~Enjoy!~

    I am so going to taunt my 14 year old with this one! He will try to come up with some hair brained, half-cocked idea to bring it home and house it, LOL!

    he'll want CAP to get it & use it for something
    "But Captain, we could make our own space shuttle and really fly!!!!"
