A Christmas Blast-off

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA's soon-to-be-retired space shuttles are up for grabs.

The space agency said Wednesday it's looking for ideas on where and how best to display its space shuttles once they stop flying in a few years. It's put out a call to schools, science museums and "other appropriate organizations" that might be interested in showcasing one of the three remaining shuttles.

Is this not the greatest Christmas gift in the history of human kind? Star Wars...Awesome. Model Rockets...Cool. But a real live Space Shuttle?!! This is definitely going to the top of my Wish List on Amazon!!

But, if I can't get the real thing, I'll settle for this:
