As mentioned in the Friday post, I was going to be staying in the shadow of the massive Hangar-1 at Moffett Field this weekend. The sun was not shining when we woke up Saturday morning to go to the workshop. However, at least it was not raining when I was able to snap this picture of the massive hangar right outside of the NASA Lodge where we were staying:
Imagine my shock and horror when I found out that the hangar is now closed to everyone due to PCB’s and other toxins that have polluted the historical landmark. There is an effort underway to save the hangar. It really didn’t matter that I did not get to go in the Hangar. Just being that close was enough. We actually parked a few hundred feet from the hangar this morning. Maybe someday if the hangar is restored and preserved I can come back and view it from the inside. The dream was still fulfilled.
