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
