Who had the first US manufactured CD?

The Space Shuttle jumbo jet is going home...

  • Print

Whenever the space shuttle would land anywhere else than Florida after returning from space, it had to be returned from California or New Mexico on the back of a 747.  The actual 747 that was outfitted to carry the shuttle is retired now and is being moved to Houston, TX to be an exhibit at Space Center Houston which is right next to The Johnson Space Center in Houston.

This is especially cool for me.  I am from Houston and grew up in the neighborhood of NASA.  I had the opportunity to get up close and go inside the 747 with the shuttle on its back many years ago. It was a great experience and now when I visit home, I'll see the 747 on display.
