NASA is quietly holding a “going out of business” sale for the facilities used by its space shuttle program.

NASA is advertising a long list of space center facilities and equipment for use, lease or, in some cases, purchase.

The list includes a 15,000-foot landing strip, a place to assemble rocket ships and a launch pad.

The last shuttle flight was July 2011, when Atlantis made its final touchdown.
