Moffet Federal Airfield or Naval Air Station Moffet Field, is currently operated by NASA. In 1933 the United States Government commissioned the federal airfield, with the original missions to serve as a home base for the Navy dirigible the U.S.S. Macon. The military base was closed on July 1, 1994 and supervision of the federal base was turned over to NASA Ames reseach center. Historic Hangar One was slated to become SpaceWorld Hangar One, a planned interactive space and science center, but polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) have been found in the building which, due to their toxicity to humans and the environment, must be remediated or contained. The US Navy, in cooperation with the Environmental Protection Agency, Regional Water Quality Control Board, and other community stakeholders, is in the process of determining how best to remove the threat the hangar poses to the public and the environment. At this juncture, the decision to either tear down or clean up Hangar One has not been reached. More information is available from NASA Ames Environmental Services.
