Nasa to Build 75-acre Research Park and Residential Community on Moffett Field

The San Jose Mercury News (3/17, 233K) editorializes, “Amid economic gloom, NASA and the region’s higher education institutions have given us something to get excited about: plans for a 75-acre research park and residential community at Moffett Field that should cement the valley’s place as a leader in green and information technology research.” Even though “hurdles remain,” such as finding a developer, the editorial comments, “Within a decade, we could look back at this as a pivotal moment when the region’s colleges and universities broke down barriers between them in pursuit of a new frontier.”
