Need a new lawn ornament? Got $42 million? And a big yard?

With space shuttles still launching and landing, NASA isn’t keen to talk about what will happen to the iconic vehicles after they’re retired.But the competition among institutions to land a space shuttle for public display is heating up.

The space agency estimated it would cost about $42 million to prepare the vehicle and deliver it via a modified 747 Boeing aircraft carrier.
