Name the shuttle contest underway

Space Center Houston, the official visitor center for NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC), will launch a free, statewide contest to name the replica space shuttle at the center.

The contest begins at 10 a.m. Thursday, July 4. The contest gives one lucky Texan the opportunity to name the high-fidelity Shuttle replica that will sit atop the massive 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA). For more information, see the July 4 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
