NASA Aircraft Operators Don't Like Competition

NASA Seeks Undergrads to Experiment in Lunar and Zero Gravity, NASA JSC

Editor’s update: Well, the folks at JSC clearly do not like the idea of private sector competitors encroaching upon their turf and the Aircraft Operations folks (and someone at JSC OIG) are actively blocking companies from using NASA facilities such as the SLF at KSC. Stay tuned.

Editor’s note: Too bad NASA can’t find a way to open this program to private sector participation – it would certainly be cheaper than paying to have this plane on call 24/7/365. But I am biased: I have seen this with my own eyes.

2007 Reduced Gravity Museum and Science Center Program Update, NASA

“We regret to inform you that the 2007 Reduced Gravity Museum and Science Center Program will not be held. After carefully examining funding options, NASA HQ decided that it simply did not have the resources to support this flight year. We will continue to pursue funding options, and hopefully, will be able to provide the opportunity again in 2008.”
