A huge payload of NASA memorabilia is headed for the Coca Cola Space Science Center. The first load of artifacts arrived today. It came from firing room three at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The featured item is the console where flight surgeons monitored the astronauts' vital signs during liftoff. Shawn Cruzen with the Space Science Center is thrilled with the amount of artifacts they will be receiving. Cruzen says, "Quite honestly we thought maybe we'd get a glove or a helmet or something like that."Instead, Cruzen says the Coca Cola Space Science Center is slated to receive nearly twenty million dollars worth of NASA artifacts, including a space shuttle main engine nozzle. Cruzen adds that now the center will be more than just a research facility. It will also be a museum with real NASA artifacts.
