NASA offers space shuttle tiles to school and universities


Last Updated: Wednesday, December 01, 2010 6:43 PM

Schools and universities across the country have a chance to get their hands on tiles from the space shuttle.

As the space shuttle program nears retirement, NASA has come up with a new plan to inspire the next generation of space explorers.

Starting Wednesday, NASA is offering 7,000 space shuttle heat tiles to school and universities that want to share technology and a piece of space history.

The tiles are lightweight and protect the space shuttles from extreme temperatures when the orbiters re-enter the Earth's atmosphere.

The tiles are available on a first-come, first-serve basis at one per school.

All recipients will be responsible for the shipping and handling fee of $23.40.
