Hangar One is the massive hangar where the Navy once kept its gigantic airships. The hangar is undergoing a massive update that is costing tens of millions of dollars. The hangar is now owned by NASA as well as the Moffett Field where the hangar is located. The proposal was made in September by Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Eric Schmidt of Google to foot the bill for the upgrades.
The trio has offered to pay NASA the $33 million it needs to finish the upgrades to Hangar One with one caveat. The Google leaders want to use as much as 2/3 of the floor space inside the hangar to park the Google fleet of eight private jets. NASA still hasn't responded to the offer even though the proposal was received positively by NASA.
You would think with the budget crunch that NASA is under it would jump at the chance to get the funding it needs to finish the upgrades with nothing more than floor space inside lost. If the decision goes on longer than it takes to remove the skin of the building and the scaffolding outside has to be removed and sat back up it will cost $1 to $2 million more just to set the scaffolding back up. NASA would be able to lease the remaining floor space out as well as the upper levels of the massive building.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
