Google Wins Lease of Historic NASA Hangar

Google was awarded the lease of Moffett Airfield, including its iconic and gigantic airship Hangar One near the company’s main campus, NASA said today. Terms of the lease have yet to be finalized, but this deal for Google subsidiary Planetary Ventures comes alongside existing arrangements to build a Google R&D facility and to park Google executives’ fleet of private jets (for which they have been buying sharply discounted fuel for years).

Correction: This post initially described the private jets parked at Moffett as belonging to Google, but they in fact belong to Google executives.
