Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Airship may come to Moffett Field's (CA) Hangar One
Hangar One may house new airship
NASA's ambitious plan could solve issue of new siding once and for all

NASA Ames deputy director Lew Braxton told a crowd last Thursday that the agency was hard at work on a plan to restore Hangar One within the next 18 months in order to return it to "its original purpose."

"There is a possibility we will have another [airship] out here," Braxton said as he talked about NASA's plan for Hangar One.

The announcement was a revelation to those at the Moffett Field Restoration Advisory Board meeting, some of whom said they'd heard rumors, but no confirmation, that NASA wanted to once more park a huge airship inside the iconic structure. Among other things, it would mean that NASA plans to re-skin the hangar after the Navy strips off its toxic siding.
