HOUSTON (July 5, 2013)—The visitor center at the Johnson Space Center in Houston is holding a “Name the Shuttle” contest to come up with a name for the full-sized shuttle replica that will be displayed there, but only Texas residents can enter.
The contest runs through Labor Day.
Texas residents can enter the contest online by visiting nametheshuttle.com and submitting an original name.
A panel of judges will select a winner, who will be announced in mid-September.
The shuttle replica, which will sit atop a 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, as part of a $12 million, six-story attraction at Space Center Houston.
Houston, which has deep ties to the nation's space program and is home to Johnson Space Center and Mission Control, unsuccessfully tried to land one of NASA's four retired space shuttles.
