NASA Ames Research Center

image of report cover

NASA Headquarters completed a review of historic resources that have been associated with the Space Shuttle Program. The objective of this process was to identify resources that might qualify for listing on the National Register of Historic Places as the Space Shuttle program approaches the end of its era. The Space Shuttle program was initiated on January 1972 by President Richard Nixon and ushered in the era of reusable space flight vehicles that were designed to assist in the building of the Space Station. The historic values of this program, like the Apollo-era program, which preceded it, are embodied in the buildings, structures and objects within the NASA centers that contributed to the Space Shuttle program.
