We have similar former Airship hangers in Tustin, Orange County CA. I've heard it is difficult to find new purpose because those structures do not meet todays safety standards, such as fire or earthquake.

@y_sasaki  Interesting. Thanks. Maybe when we all get our jetpacks, these dirigble hangars could become indoor jetpack lounges or just an indoor space to try out the jetpack. Maybe not. Or a place for testing drones.

I think that this would have served its purpose duing the satelite or flight tests. Keeping the temperature and atmosphere control for such a struture is really tough.

Oh man, that is so cool. I wish I could have seen it while it was in the hangar.

As totally awesome as that sounds, I think NASA should focus on space. Maybe they should sell it to some crazy billionaire to finally get some funding!

A long time ago I talked to a guy that did radio controlled planes. They wanted to have races and stuff in one of these but there were insurance reasons that they couldn't because the buildings didn't meet current code. Its a shame, that would have been cool.

It could possibly be subdivided but unfortunately the cost to bring it up to modern day code might make that financially difficult. It is just easier to build new modern buildings for more manageable sizes.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
