As most of us know by now, NASA’s Space Shuttle Program is set to end this year. While that is sad news for all of us here in Clear Lake, aka the Space City, where we are surrounded by the influence of the Shuttle Program and NASA everyday, an even sadder idea is that we be left with literally only the memories.
All three U.S. Space Shuttle will be retired when the program ends and will be put in museums, science centers or other learning institutions. While there are plenty of places all over the world that would do a great job of permanently displaying one of these precious shuttles, don’t you think we should have one here in Clear Lake? Don’t you think one of the shuttles should be able to stay at home?
Let the memory of the Shuttle Program live on here in Clear Lake. Take action and write a letter to government officials telling them you want to bring a shuttle home.
