Google's co-founders are on a mission to save NASA's Hangar One, which once housed the US Navy's airships at Moffett Field but has latterly been rented by the Chocolate Factory's top brass to provide a shelter for - among other things - a fighter jet. Mountain View's troika of execs - Sergey Brin, Larry Page and Eric Schmidt - …
That Google has hired of lot of people from NASA.
For what? Because the biggest hiring company of ex-NASA employees at least around the Space Center, has been Space X and Lockheed-Martin Missiles and Fire Control and of course the United Launch Alliance.
Are they hiring people from JPL or something?
Im not trying to chew your ass here or anything, Im genuinely very curious.
Between Google and the Mythbusters renting the space, NASA should make out nicely for any renovations.
IIRC, the Mythbusters occasionally use that space for experiments that require a very large space but can't take wind/sun/rain/etc of The Great Outdoors. I wonder what, if anything, would happen to their arrangement?
Beer for science and preserving old/cool stuff, but mostly just because I like beer...
The "museum or educational centre"
should contain a permanent display of a lead balloon.
and they stress the fact that their datacenters are "green"; how much are these jets burning???
The greeness of jets
"how much are these jets burning???"
Nothing when they're in the hangar.
It needs renovation funds, it is, at the end of the day, a hangar, and they want to park airplanes inside. I say go ahead. It is not like they want to tear it down a build a parking lot there instead.
Meanwhile the two hangars at Cardington built for the R100 and R101 are in a shocking state of disrepair.
the real one percent!
Occupy Hanger One! Down with the 1%!
and all that memetic shite.
well, it does have cool stuff in it, so whether "occupying" or just visiting it's worth it. I just don't want to have to pay for admission :P
