    NASA To Hold 30th Anniversary Ceremony At Kennedy Space Center And Announce Permanent Space Shuttle Locations

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- NASA Administrator Charles Bolden will participate in a ceremony at the Kennedy Space Center, Fla., on Tuesday, April 12 on the 30th anniversary of the first space shuttle launch. During the 1 p.m. EDT ceremony, Bolden and Kennedy Center Director Bob Cabana will honor the shuttle work force's dedication, which has made it possible for NASA to take the next steps in exploration and retire the shuttle fleet later this year.

    During the ceremony, which will feature an astronaut from the first shuttle mission, Bolden also will name the four institutions that will receive a shuttle orbiter for permanent display. The announcement and ceremony will air live on NASA Television and the agency's website:

    At 3 p.m. on April 12, NASA will hold a media teleconference to discuss the placement of the orbiters. Senior NASA officials will be available to answer questions.

    They should bury one at Arlington National Cemetery. The tombstone should read "U.S. Manned Space Program Born May 5, 1961 Died June 2011" (fill in exact time of death when Atlantis returns).

    Nah, it's a bit more of a drive for me.

    Here's a link to a site called 'Current Locations of Manned Spacecraft'
    http://www.live555.com/misc/CapsuleLocations.html
    It hasn't been updated since March 14th 2011, and all the existing shuttles are still listed as still in service, but I would expect them to correct this soon :-D
