The Worldwide Area Station has gone out of enterprise — in a Houston suburb.

Fry’s Electronics closed all of its retail shops on Wednesday (Feb. 24), together with its Webster, Texas location, which featured a one-of-a-kind, full-scale mockup of the sprawling orbital complex. The actual International Space Station (ISS) stays in operation, overseen by the flight controllers on the close by NASA Johnson Area Middle in Houston.
