Nasa giving away space shuttle engines (not kidding)

Umm, if you can move it you can have a space shuttle engine, sounds like pretty amazing Burning Man art to me

I wanted to use the shuttle as my mutant vehicle art car. But I was told I had to make it look like something else. Then I only wanted it so I could have use the engines for my flame effects. Too many rule at burning man.

Screw fueling it. Just sit the damn thing in a keyhole and tell the hippies to do whatever they want. They look pretty amazing. And they are enormous.

Ooooh, new man base!
