NASA’s Ames Research Center is ready to begin construction of what is planned as the greenest building ever built by the federal government, a structure that will use state-of-the-art sensors developed for space missions but also rely on the age-old strategy of opening the window to catch a cool breeze.

Christened “Sustainability Base” about ain an homage to “Tranquility Base,” the site of the first moon landing 40 years ago, the $20.6 million building will begin construction in month.
