Second Life Newser got a tip from the Cub Scouts at Camp Kawabata this weekend when some tried to go to the recreation of the last Space Shuttle launch at the Avatrian Central sim. The build had remained there since the event on July 8, 2011, but when they tried to head to the scene to show freinds, they found it was gone.
Avatrian Central is also the home to a recreation of the Abbotabad Compound used by arch-terrorist Osama Bin-Laden to hide out until his killing last year. It's a small irony news of the sim's vanishing comes at the time the real-life compound is being demolished.
The Avatrian blog has been inactive since the shuttle launch. It's unknown what happened to the group.
