How much is this costing the taxpayer? Things like this is the reason the government has to keep printing money. This project should have been funded by private means.

My understanding is that Space Center Houston is a private corporation that has to raise money to acquire and maintain its artifacts. I don't believe that Space Center Houston gets taxpayer funding for things like this. Space Center Houston is in the middle of a $12 million fundraising drive to cover all aspects of the 747 + Shuttle Mock-up project.
