Re: Welcome Home Discovery

That was awesome to watch.

Eric, since it's first trip in 1984 total days in space was 365.....
Thought it was going to the Smithsonian after being "safed" but it seems it will cost almost 30 Million dollars to move her and all the other prep.

Where it will end up is up in the air at this time...

I think the Museum of Flight here in Seattle is spending big $$ for a new building in hopes that it will land here!!!

I think they were hoping to see it in a "Centralized" location in between the East and West coast.

I personally think if it isn't in the Smithsonian it should be at Wright-Patterson mainly because the Air Force has been along with NASA from the beginning so an Air Force museum makes sense to me....

Our president cut the funding for The Constilation project which would have sent us back to the moon.

I have to admit, I AM a little biased toward it resting in Seattle!
