Free, You Haul: Shuttle Main Engines

Need to spice up your local museum, town square, or megamall? NASA has slashed prices on the soon-to-be-retired space shuttles Atlantis and Endeavor. $29 million apiece, folks!

AND, even better, they'll give away spare space shuttle main engines (you haul, some assembly required).

There's a tantalizing reference to "potential artifacts that include the space shuttle, Hubble space telescope, Apollo, Mercury, and Gemini."

If anyone can wade through the goobledgook to find out how an institution (mine?) can grab a Hubble artifact, that would be swell.
