NASA Wants You To Name Its Newest Shuttle ... Sort Of
It won't leave the ground, but it'll help lay the floor for a $12 million attraction at Space Center Houston - and NASA wants you to give it a name.

The official visitor hub for NASA’s Johnson Space Center is putting its free contest at nametheshuttle.com.
