Surely they should rip out the hd just to be on the safe side.

at the Kennedy equipment disposal facility that all had external markings listing network details.
Such details could potentially provide hackers with unauthorised access to Nasa's internal computer network".

You couldn't make this stuff up.

Many years ago, I knew a very big machinery plant hire, construction and sales company that made enquiries about the moon buggy for advertising purposes. They were told that they could have the moon buggy for free, providing that they collected it.


From that moment on, the company started to offer for sale in their promotional magazines the moon buggy, with the same stipulation regarding collection. Always made a conversation piece at meetings and sales pitches.

Also many years ago, Nasa put out a world-wide appeal for original old type floppy disks. I wonder if they managed to obtain any, or whether they still want any?.

I found the skip full of hard drives hard to believe. In a non secure area as well!
