NASA is seeking outside organizations interested in a unique outreach opportunity using main landing gear tires from space shuttle missions. The three-year renewable loan of these tires may be used to educate, inspire or inform the public about NASA’s scientific and technological achievements. These items may not be used for the promotion of any organization or entity, or for commercial purposes.
Tires flown on specific missions or on a certain orbiter may be requested although NASA cannot guarantee that all requests will be fulfilled. Unflown tires are also available. This opportunity is open to a wide variety of organizations including, but not limited to, museums, schools and civic organizations. For more information and supplemental educational materials, visit http://artifacts.nasa.gov/space_shuttle_lgt.htm.
Questions about this opportunity should be directed to Tony Springer at Tony.Springer@nasa.gov.
