WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. -- Drone technology may seem like the hot new thing.
At NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility? That’s sooo 20th century.
The spaceport’s original name in 1945, after all, was the Pilotless Aircraft Research Station. These days, officials with NASA and the Virginia Commercial Space Flight Authority are hoping to continue that tradition well into the 21st century with the construction of a longer airstrip dedicated to drone flights.
