Nasa sends retired shuttles to museums

Nasa is to send three retired space shuttles to museums in California, Florida and suburban Washington.

Discovery is headling to the Air and Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia, Atlantis to Florida's Kennedy Space Center, and Endeavour to the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

Nasa administrator Charles Bolden said each shuttle had "stories to tell".

"Take good care of our vehicles," said Mr Bolden, a former astronaut who flew four times on the shuttle. "They have served you well."
