I've toured the Blue Cube in the mid-90s. Yeah, I know nobody ever believes me when I say this. Fortunately, I have witnesses. ;-) I have no idea if there are any large rooms in the building, but I would not call it a hangar. It was more like an office building. Some of the doors were like meat lockers or bank vaults. The gear was really really old. I spotted VT100s and nixies. The only really cool thing I saw was a room where they did the satellite scheduling. They had huge CRTs that were perfectly flat and very deep. You would need a fork lift to move one. The claim was they had more satellites than they had earth stations to download the data, so scheduling is a big deal.

Vtype, thanks for the MS Earth link, the resolution is awesome! There are some serious wind tunnel facilities there, including some extremely large supersonic facilities!
