says where? as seen on the new scientist website:<br><br>&quot;If an entire shuttle is beyond your budget, consider a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Shuttle_main_engine">main engine</a>
instead. NASA had hoped to charge up to $800,000 for these but lack of
interest has forced it to slash the price. They are now available for
free: a bargain in anybody&#39;s language. Just bear in mind that the buyer
must pay for postage and packaging.&quot;<br><br>this makes me beleive that no purchase is necessery for the free engines except for hauling it away. i think the engines are either extras, or are going to be taken out of the shuttle before putting them up for sale. i don&#39;t think you have to buy one to get the other or else they would have stated that<br>

Just for the record .. the engines are free only to those who BUY THE<br>
SHUTTLES.  It&#39;s their option if they want the engines or not for<br>

purchase a working shuttle engines and all to use for research.<br>
