"NASA Ames Research Center has complained that every year it covers several million dollars in airfield expenses that are not paid for by users of the runways at Moffett, including the Air National Guard's 129th Rescue Wing and Lockheed Martin." Do we correctly interpret the statement to mean that Lockheed Martin is paying less than the cost of their airfield useage? If so, why do officials fail to discuss cost recovery from Lockheed Martin as well as from Google?
Build a high-tech modern replica of the Hindenburgh and put it in a restored Hanger One. Maybe use the same technology as the Zeppelin NT, but make it 800+ feet long. Resurrect Airship Ventures and put them in charge.
Since it was the price of helium that wiped out Airship Ventures, use hydrogen as the lifting gas (that wasn't the problem with the original, it was the solid rocket fuel they used to dope the outer canvas envelope with!).
Don't miss out on the discussion!
