Help Build a New Shuttle Training Aircraft Exhibit at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center®

Your support helps create an interactive exhibit with STA NASA 945, one of only four NASA aircraft ever produced for use by astronauts to practice landing the space shuttle!

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!

Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Space & Rocket Center and our mission of educating and inspiring the next generation of explorers, astronauts, aviators engineers, scientists and leaders. Please support Project STA with a tax-deductible contribution to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center Foundation today! (Tax I.D. # 63-1265839)
