It's a shame Congress won't appropriate the money to do something cool with it, like turn it into an interactive science park for kids. As a kid, I'd have enjoyed something like that way more than Disney World.

Yes, I kind of do.

/Would rather own a missile silo.

FTA: As the only spacecraft ever to land like an airplane, NASA built a 1,000 foot-long runway as the centerpiece in its Shuttle Landing Facility.

Proofread much?

I was hung up on the horrible dangling modifier. I thought NASA was the agency that operated spacecraft, not the actual name of one.

Hi, comrades!


Pssh, It took off/landed once. Btw, I prefer this picture. Its very surreal.

The Russian military was going to use it to nuke the crap out of us with mini-shuttles that would fit in the cargo bay.

Oh, and speaking of mini-shuttles. Flown to space three times now, with OTV-3 flying over our heads right this moment. Last mission lasted 469 days. Smaller than the Buran, yes, but Buran didn't even spend a whole day in space. 206 minutes later and it landed, never to fly again.

While very true about the Buran flying only once and only making two orbits and the US military's unmanned orbiter, the article says "ever". The shuttle was not actually the only spacecraft to land like an airplane.
/and that is a good picture of yours.

And all it took was a little snow to destroy it...
