For its part, Space Center Houston has some grand plans in the works should it receive a shuttle. “We currently have a building, about 53,000 square feet, that would house the orbiter,” Allen said. “The theme we’re looking at for the exhibits is the human side of the orbiter, what the astronauts were able to accomplish.” Allen’s not being picky. He said any of NASA’s orbiters Discovery, Endeavour or Atlantis — would be welcome in Houston.”We think we could tell that story about any of the three vehicles,” he said.The center receives about 750,000 visitors a year, he said, and has hosted almost 14 million people since it opened in 1992.
