Rocket Motors at Bargain Prices

The New York Times did an article yesterday about NASA slashing prices on “end of era” hardware. Shuttles at a deep discount of 28 million.

But the lines that got me were the following:

“As for the space shuttle main engines, those are now free. NASA advertised them in December 2008 for $400,000 to $800,000 each, but no one expressed interest. So now the engines are available, along with other shuttle artifacts, for the cost of transportation and handling.

Assembly will be required, however.” – NY TIMES

    It is bull. Why would they sell the engines? Also, every piece of the shuttles will be sold as collectibles if they are removed. Almost all of these parts have already been claimed, I promise you. They just want to stir up some competition over the remaining parts and the final prices.
