Well hope they bought their winter gear and wet weather gear. It's blardy cold and wet. Somebody better tell Nicky Hager that it is a secret listening post for the NSA and ties into Echelon so that PRISM can access all the NZ phone email radio typewriter and internet metadata that the GCSB haven't got yet. It also has a very good chem trail dispersion system on board that has recently been upgraded.
SOFIA is still in its verification and validation stage and our team must remain focused on achieving NASA’s scientific goals during this, our very first deployment. To that end, we elected to send only essential aircraft, observatory, and scientific staff on this deployment. During our future return visits, we anticipate opening SOFIA for limited tours to the general public.
