Read the contract, one contract costs 52 million!!
lol. ill read that a little bit later, thanks for sharing
GRC has been given responsibility for the Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) Service Module (SM) and Spacecraft Adapter (SA). As part of this GRC will be developing requirements, performing design cycles for government reference configurations, providing insight/oversight of the contractor’s development of SM/SA and performing Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) of contractor efforts.
The NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) ion propulsion program addresses the need for high specific impulse ion propulsion systems and technology across a broad range of mission applications and power levels NASA GRC is involved in essentially all U.S. government ion propulsion development activities in either a leadership position and/or in a technical management role. Development areas include: high-power - both highthroughput and high-specific impulse - engine components, engines, and power processing technology, lightweight high-efficiency sub-kilowatt ion propulsion, and fundamentals. NASA GRC is also leading two highly focused activities: development ofView Task Requests file:///V|/GESS2/FOIA/FOIA-00366/013.htm[3/11/2010 10:52:06 AM] the Next Generation Ion propulsion system for the agency (NEXT – NASA’s Evolutionary Xenon Thruster) under the In-Space Program, and development of high-power highspecific impulse ion thruster technology applicable to nuclear systems (HiPEP – High Power Electric Propulsion) under Project Prometheus. NASA GRC is also supporting a number of other agency ion propulsion initiatives: flight thruster hardware component manufacturing and flight thruster and power processor technical support for the DAWN flight project; post-life test analysis of the flight spare NSTAR thruster; technical oversight of carbon-based ion optics activities and high-power ion thruster technology activities at JPL; and support of United States Air Force materials contracts for carbonbased ion optics fabrication. NASA GRC also continues to support on-orbit operations of the International Space Station plasma contactor systems, which use hollow cathod

S+F for verifying something that's easily verifiable by calling.

I called NASA, asking for the library.
The first guy i asked if it was true, because i read it somewhere online, he says uhhhhhh, please hold.. lol
I was starting to get worried i would get MIB at my door, but i holded, and a girl came on the line, i asked her and she has never heard of it, and she said the Senate would smack nasa on the head if they tried to do that.
I told her to google it and she said abovetopsecret? I said uhhh...no....lol
She said it was an internet hoax, so truth or not?
Can anyone link me an actual credible site for this news

instead of saying its an internet hoax, she probably meant to say the internet is a hoax.
you cant believe anything you see on the internet or on tv. its all a hoax. infact anything you see with your eyes is a hoax. you will only see the truth if you keep your eyes wide shut.
good of you to call though.
