(Newser) – NASA space shuttles are now priced to sell. The space agency cut the per-shuttle price from $42 million to $29 million for Endeavour and Atlantis, reports the Orlando Sentinel. NASA is retiring the fleet at the end of the year and hopes museums or schools want them for display. The National Air and Space Museum has dibs on Discovery, and it already has Enterprise, which never made it into space. The others are slightly used, with about 100 millon miles or so.
