HOUSTON -

On Saturday, we'll learn the winning entry in the 'Name the Shuttle' contest for the full-scale space shuttle replica at Space Center Houston.

The statewide challenge gave Texans a chance to show their support for America's space program.

The shuttle replica will eventually sit atop a 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft as part of the $12 million, 6-story attraction.

The space shuttle attraction is slated to open in 2015 and will be the only place in the world where guests can climb aboard the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft and the Shuttle replica to experience the 30-year Space Shuttle program.
