NASA Technical Reports Server Shut Down in Wake of Security Investigation

Via “NASA has taken its huge database of technical reports offline in response to the arrest last weekend of a former contractor suspected of spying for China. The space agency decided to shut down the NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS) as part of a broad security review spurred by the arrest of Bo Jiang, who was grabbed by FBI agents Saturday (March 16) on a China-bound plane at Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C. “I’ve closed down the NASA Technical Reports database while we review whether there’s a risk,” NASA chief Charles Bolden told the House Appropriations Committee Wednesday (March 20) during a hearing set up to probe possible security lapses at space agency centers.”
