Space shuttles for sale


CAPE CANAVERAL, FL (WKOW)--NASA is cutting the price it's asking for two of its space shuttles.

Atlantis and Endeavour are for sale once they quit flying, scheduled for this fall.

Friday, NASA dropped the price from $42 million to $28.8 million apiece.

When NASA put out the call to museums, schools and others in December 2008, seeking buyers, about 20 expressed interest.

NASA spokesman Mike Curie expects more takers, what with the discount.

Discovery is already promised to the Smithsonian Institution. 

Curie says no decisions will be made before summer
