Hangar One should be torn down and the land restored to a useful purpose for the community.
Let's build a nice dirt bike track and maybe a shooting range.
Hard to find places to do either of those activities in the Bay Area anymore.
You folks sure took long enough to stumble across my posting from 2 weeks ago. Here is a link Web Link
As for Bill Berry's comments - he's speculating - with an obvious local bias - on one local issue.
Yeah, hurry up and get rid of it already. Why not move the Chevron refinery from Richmond down to Moffett Field? Or open a freight airfield so we can all watch and listen to the roar of FedEx planes providing their 24 hour service. This city is so quiet, you can hear stupid crickets at night! A nuclear power plant is another option. California prisons are overcrowded. Why not build the world largest prison on the site? The possibilities are endless. Just think, any one of these exciting choices could happen once you put up the "for sale" sign on Moffett Field. Why are they dragging their feet on this? So what if Google might not like their new neighbors. They certainly have enough money to pack up and move somewhere else.
I don't think the issue has as much to do with Hangar 1 as the story suggests. NASA ARC has a history of poor reviews by employees since the appointment of Worden.
ARC is ranked 105 overall by the employee viewpoint survey, and is the lowest ranked NASA Center. As comparison, the prison system is ranked 118.
Worden has a history of bullying career civil servants out and appointing outsiders (mostly younger)to key positions at their expense.
The rankings for ARC jump up to 15 for the under 40 employees, then down to 138 for the over 40 employees. The prison system is ranked at 109 for the over 40 employees.
NASA as an Agency does much better overall as it should given that its competitors' missions are not nearly as exciting as space exploration.
