NASA Is Lending Satellites
“NASA is lending the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) to the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, where the spacecraft will continue its exploration of the cosmos. In a first-of-a-kind move for NASA, a Space Act Agreement was signed May 14 so the university soon can resume spacecraft operations and data management for the mission using private funds.”
Keith’s note: Wow. Is NASA going to adopt this approach for the reuse of other spacecraft? This could be very interesting.
