    My understanding is that Space Center Houston is a private corporation that has to raise money to acquire and maintain its artifacts. I don't believe that Space Center Houston gets taxpayer funding for things like this. Space Center Houston is in the middle of a $12 million fundraising drive to cover all aspects of the 747 + Shuttle Mock-up project.

    How much is this costing the taxpayer? Things like this is the reason the government has to keep printing money. This project should have been funded by private means.
