From The Orlando Sentinel: That has prompted NASA to advertise a long list of KSC facilities and equipment as available for use, lease or, in some cases, outright purchase by the right business. Among them: Launch Pad 39A, where shuttles were launched; space in the Vehicle Assembly Building, the iconic 526-foot-tall structure first used to assemble Saturn V-Apollo rockets; the Orbiter Processing Facilities, essentially huge garages where the shuttles were maintained; Hangar N and its high-tech test equipment; the launch-control center; and various other buildings and chunks of undeveloped property. A lot of the stuff needs to be transferred by the end of 2013, when federal maintenance money will run out. When it does, machinery will start to rust, and buildings will deteriorate in the harsh coastal-marsh environment of Cape Canaveral.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Soon to be renamed Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center 2 or Xichang Satellite Launch Center 2 or Seven Happiness Satellite Launch Center.
But the mooslums feel pretty good about their contributions to numbers and science and stuff....so who cares? //sarc
This is Obama addressing our spending problem: dismantling the USA to pay for EBT cards.
How are we supposed to get our people into orbit?
Did America invent anti-grav and just forget to tell everyone?
Obama’s Communist Agenda for Amerika is being rapidly accepted by all who fear his brutal might.
Congress is hanging a red light outside the door, everything is for sale.
Well, since NASA’s primary mission is to make Muslims feel better about themselves, maybe we could sell it for a really big Mosque and get in on some of that action Al Gore got with that environmentally friendly, ideologically aligned Qatar oil money...
Another icon of ‘patriotic nationalism’ down the tubes. This is a disgrace. 0bama is a disgrace. By 2016, NASA will be only a memory.
Nowadays, we just give free stuff to people who don't work.
Never imagined such a day would arrive. Obama actually killed NASA, that used to be the pinnacle of American pride. Now we cannot put a man in orbit and all the infrastructure is for sale. Sickening.
“Houston, We have a problem”
Selling off America piece by piece
NASA is supposed to be doing long-hair, bleeding edge science research, like figuring out how to make air safety better.
They aren't any good for operational stuff.
Except for killing people and breaking things, governments aren't actually very good at much.
I was thinking more like the Frito Lay Launchpad and the Godaddy.com Observation Building...
That's going commercial. See Space-X.
probably ~ there are hints out there
This is great! We can use the revenue to buy more Obamaphone! /s
