I grew up in the forty's and learned of the importance of Hangar One and watched the blimps fly... It is a very improtant part of the Bay Areas history. It is also a historic site... I agree with Dennis, must be restored at all costs... NASA needs to accept Googles offer...

Let Google donate to the cause with NO strings attached. Why should Google tie their donation with terms for a preferential lease? Nasa should say NO to the preferential lease terms.

If we are going to "sell" our resources to corporations, we should sell them to the highest bidder with 100% transparency. Let others bid against Google and let's hold our public representatives accountable to high ethical standards instead of appearing to favor some companies over others.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
