Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
A historic piece of real estate, NASA Ames Moffett Field’s 1,000+ acre airfield, 3 iconic hangars, including the famous hangar one and a professional golf course are up for a development bid this October. Two previous NASA scientists, Dr. Sean Casey and Dr. Peri Pappadopoulos, Co-Founders of Silicon Valley Space Center, plan to win it!
Drs. Casey and Pappadopoulos have formed the Silicon Valley Space Center’s Moffett Federal Airfield Alliance, which has over 200 years of combined industry experience in science, engineering, and business. This local team includes scientists, engineers, aerospace engineers, architects, entrepreneur startups and those experienced in aviation maintenance, education, industrial training, military, finance and real estate. The Alliance has the background and home team advantage to make a viable financial project that adds value to the community and commemorates the importance NASA Ames has played in Aviation, Space and Planetary sciences.
Dr. Sean Casey, CEO, with a PhD in Astrophysics from University of Chicago and MBA’s from both Columbia and U.C. Berkeley, states, “As a graduate student at Chicago, I was inspired by the facilities and opportunities at NASA Ames which is why I came to the Bay Area as an airborne astronomer many years ago. Today, I am excited because there has never been a project more perfect for the skill sets of our team and myself. We can make the Moffett Airfield profitable while paying respect to NASA Ames past missions like the Kuiper Airborne Observatory and current missions like the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, where I was a Senior Scientist for over 15 years”.
What is the Alliance plan? To have office space ear-marked for today's pioneers of the NewSpace industry, innovators and entrepreneurs in such areas as small satellites, space communications, mission design, unmanned aerial s
