Adios Blue Cube in Sunnyvale

Original post made by Paul Losch, a resident of Palo Alto, on Dec 20, 2010

My afternoon commute between I880 and US101 takes me along CA237 and past the complex of Cold War relics such as the "Blue Cube," which was described back in the day as "Ground Zero," when nuclear war with the Soviet Union was the defense concern, and the Blue Cube was chock full of military intelligence, and a site that "the bad guys" would lay to waste first in a nuclear war.

Paul, I'm guessing you're a "glass-half-full" kinda guy.

The operations at Onizuka weren't discontinued because they were no longer necessary. Some of the work was moved to Vandenberg, but most got moved to Falcon (now Schriever) AFB in Colorado. Both sites have more room for growth and offer better security than Onizuka.
