if NASA has sensitive info they should have just yanked the HDD's and set them under the launch pad in one of the exhaust vents for the last shuttle mission. but then again this info is probably about as old as the hundreds of 486 processors used in every shuttle dating back to columbia. talk about time for an upgrade!
American needs to get it's act together and tighten access to their sensitive technology and information. Billions of dollars in research only to have someones "accident" put it on the market. America has become a joke at how it is protecting their crucial data from outsiders and doesn't care because they think they can keep throwing trillions of new dollars more at new research and breakthroughs forever.
