NASA Space Shuttle, $48m shipped

A little more than you were probably planning on spending this holiday season, but… if you’re in the market for a slightly used space shuttle and have the space for it (climate control is a must), you’re not going to find it for any cheaper than this. Even on Craigslist. Sorry, main engines are not included (available separately for $400,000-$800,000).

The shuttle itself is actually going for $42m (OBO) — where they really get you is the shipping: $6m at the minimum for piggybacking on a custom jumbo jet to your local airport. Why can’t they just drop it in from orbit?
