(Houston, TX ) The Space Shuttle program is ending and for some reason, none of the space shuttles will retire in Houston. There are shuttles going to New York City, Florida, Los Angeles and Washington.
When asked about why the shuttles chose these other cities over the city that raised and cultivated them into the shuttles they are now, they shrugged their shoulders.
The shuttle that is headed for Florida, who goes by JT, stated, "It's not that I'm unappreciative to my parents, but I've had a long life going in and out of space. I just want to sit on the beach and chillax."
Florentino, who is headed for New York, stated that he just always wanted to see the Statue of Liberty and live off the hot dogs and pizza there. "I might take in some shows as well," he said.
Dixie will begin her trip to Los Angeles in the coming weeks. She's always wanted to give acting a try. "I've always felt it was my true calling," she said while wiping some lunar dust off her wing. Dixie is reportedly going to be trying out for bit parts on Castle as well as Parenthood.
Her brother Duke is headed for Washington. "I'm excited. I've always wanted to sit in the lobby of Congress," he stated.
While it's true that there is a beach close to Mission Control, NASA is letting their shuttles spread their wings and fly to their new homes. Undoubtedly, Houstonians feel bitter about none of the NASA off spring making their final landing in Houston, but they wish the shuttles well in their future endeavors.
