SPACE CENTER HOUSTON—Texans will have the chance this summer to put their stamp on a piece of space exploration history at a massive exhibit planned for Space Center Houston.

NASA’s tourism hub is launching a statewide contest, beginning July 4, to determine the name of the space shuttle replica that will eventually sit atop an enormous 747 jetliner used to transport real orbiters.

The contest, open to any Texas resident, calls for participants to submit an original name for the mock-up orbiter delivered to Houston last year. The name should be no more than three words and should represent the “spirit of Texas and its unique characteristics of independence, optimism and can-do attitude,” according to the contest guidelines.
