Name a Shuttle!

Drawing of shuttleHouston will soon have a new attraction at the Johnson Space Center. Although this is not one of the real orbiters from the retired shuttle fleet, Texas is still embracing it as a tribute to the shuttle program. The shuttle replica, scheduled to open in 2015, will be the only such attraction in the nation to allow visitors to actually step foot inside of it. A contest to name the shuttle will begin on July 4th. To see the rules and to vote, click here.
