New York City could be the new home to one of NASA's space shuttles.

NASA has announced it plans to retire a fleet of space shuttles -- Discovery, Endeavor and Atlantis -- and part of NASA's plan is to offer up the shuttles to different institutions throughout the US.
 
The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum has already put its bid in for consideration.

If New York is chosen, one of the retiring shuttles would be put on display on the West Side along side The USS Intrepid and the Growler Submarine at Manhattan's Pier 86.
 
New Yorkers can sign a petition to help sway the space program to choose New York at the Intrepid's website.

Let's bring a shuttle home!
