Museums Hover Over Remaining Shuttles Like Vultures

NASA says it will take a minimum of 15 more shuttle flights to complete construction of the International Space Station. Following Discovery's successful launch and mission, the first of those flights is tentatively scheduled for late next month.

Since Congress has set a deadline of 2010 for all shuttles to be permanently retired, various museums have begun the process of vying for one of the three remaining shuttles.

This alone is surely a sign America's space program is back on track...
