What will happen to the space shuttles that service the Hubble Telescope?

Grounding The Space Shuttles

Three space shuttles with ties to the Hubble Space Telescope, the Atlantic, Discovery, and Endeavor, will eventually retire. The question is, where will they end up? As of July in 2006, visitor complexes in NASA's Alabama, Florida, and Texas locations have top dibs on at least one of the shuttles. Other possible future locations include the National Museum of the United States Air force in Ohio and locations in California. While museum officials hash out the details, the three space shuttles still have a heavy itinerary ahead of them – a minimum of 15 more flights to the International Space Station and one possible service maintenance to the Hubble Space Telescope.
