Thanks to more than 300 contributors, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center Foundation successfully raised $70,000 needed to land Shuttle Training Aircraft NASA 945 in Shuttle Park. Now our mission continues as we raise the remaining funds to fully complete the first phase of the exhibition. Our fundraising goal allows us to add a canopy to protect the STA from the elements, a landing for interior access by museum guests and Space Camp® or Aviation Challenge® Camp trainees, a replica of the White Sands/Shuttle Landing Facility runway the STAs used, as well as landscaping/storm drainage. Your support of our STA project helps preserve an essential part of the space shuttle era and creates an inspiring exhibit showcasing the intersection of aviation and space exploration. We also have exclusive STA-themed giveaways available to early donors… only while supplies last!
