Even cheaper since Google has offered to pay for it.

Excellent news!

I sincerely hope that Google just pays their taxes so to speak, in just letting the money go to public works with no strings attached, and go without owning a piece of (what is rightly) public property.

This proposed privatization of a public space is bad for everyone but the 1%, and I know that people will think less of Google as a company if they lease that space in return for their so-called "philanthropy."

The hangar looks pretty good without a skin. Let's leave it that way for awhile.

You'd think the bean-counters at NASA, the agency that once sent humans to the moon, and returned them safely to the Earth, could have figured that out by now.

Then those same bean-counters should have have figured out that a recent offer of private funding would solve the "who's going to pay for this?" problem that the Navy and NASA have been ducking for the better part of a decade.
