Oh, they'll keep the "rift raft" out all right. This will be the ultimate gated community, with the Moffett Police patrolling the fence lines, keeping out everyone not in the Google family, including NASA employees.

With respect to so-called collaboration with NASA science, it sounds like mickey-mouse stuff and WHITE-WASH to me. Any kid can develop a web-site to disseminate data coming out of the Kepler project. The tax payer has the right to ask: please show me the scientific publications that have come out of scientific instruments on Google airplanes. I bet there are ZERO. NASA officials appear to be kowtowing to Google to regard Google as the customer of the tax-payer.

You naysayers need to cut it out! If something in Mountain View is in financial peril, you say "how come Google doesn't buy it? They can afford it!" Then, if Google buys something, you say "Google strickes again! Buying up MV!" Pick a position already!
