. four months ago, I've suggested to Yahoo founders to sell their company to Microsoft and use the $4 Bn earned to start a new.space company or just buy NASA... http://www.ghostnasa.com/posts/024yahoospace.html two months ago I've suggested the same thing to Apple that has over $18 Bn cash to invest... http://www.ghostnasa.com/posts/027applenasa.html talking about my suggestions on several Space forums and blogs (nearly) everybody said me it was a "crazy idea"... but, now, the US government space agency "sells" part of a Space center to a private company! http://blog.wired.com/wiredscience/2008/06/google-signs-le.html?cid=117845478 the ONLY difference is that, the "buyer" is NOT Apple or Yahoo or Microsoft, but (again) the (Orwell's Big Brother) Google!!! sure, NASA did not (exactly) "sell" part of the Ames center, but just LEASE it to Google for the next 90 years... in my opinion, lease it to Google for 90 years (!!!!!) is only the best way to (really) SELL it, but WITHOUT ask Google to pay the (higher) price to BUY it... then, I was right again... .
