So true what the former astronauts are saying. California should be on the cutting edge in space exploration, especially since we are supposed to be the technology innovation State. Why isn't Vallejo Economic Development and Chamber of Commerce looking into attracting that kind of technology business for Vallejo and Mare Island? This would instantly put Vallejo on the map and attract much needed investment and tax revenues.
