Sheboygan nonprofit is collecting NASA artifacts
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) – A nonprofit in Sheboygan is collecting NASA artifacts for a space exploration display. The Sheboygan Press Media reports Great Lakes Aerospace Science and Education Center, also known as Spaceport Sheboygan, has already received a 70mm camera for mounting on a space shuttle, several pieces of a space suit and shuttle tires. Executive Director Daniel Bateman says he began requesting artifacts from federal surplus in January, when the opportunity opened up. But the center is also looking for a new home. In 2010, Sheboygan officials leased the building to them for $1 per year for five years, with an option to renew for another five years at the same price. But Bateman says they need to find a building that gives them better control over temperature and humidity levels.
