After the missions of space shuttles have been completed NASA doesn’t just throw out the planes. They put them on display in a museum for all to see. To show people how the shuttle went into space and returned back safe and sound. As the last space mission ended NASA plans to show the public the planes and also take out parts of the shuttles to reuse or to test and experiment.
After the shuttles landed back home at earth NASA has gotten requests to get parts of the shuttle to research and learn more about. To discover the damages space does on the shuttle and how it could be improved. The parts that will be coming out will not change the shuttle at all since it is going to go on display. The plane is going to look the same but parts will be replaced with fake ones. The engines will be taken out to be reused or tested to make more better. The thrusters will be taken out since they are highly hazardous and replaced to look just the same. NASA wants to also put this on display to show the future world what it started from in space flight. To show those in the future it did start like this and the this shuttle did go into space and came back safe and sound.
New Dorp High School student John LaPre was asked, “ What do you think of the idea of them using the shuttles as displays in museums and using its parts for future use?” He answered, “I feel there was no point of NASA doing that. Why couldn’t they just repair the shuttle and use it over and over again instead of wasting money on building news ones. Yes it might bring more research to space flight, its just pointless.”
NASA doing this can cause the country to know more about space flight. It shows the world up close what the shuttle looked like and the success the shuttle had in space. The parts being shipped out to numerous places gives an opportunity for the U.S. To expand in its research and technological dominance.Tweet
