MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA-- An aging federal research lab here on the outskirts of Silicon Valley hopes to use some of its prime real estate to lure universities and industrial companies to become its neighbors and partners in a unique research campus. If successful, the arrangement could help NASA's Ames Research Center over the next decade to become a major player in the hot new fields of information technologies, astrobiology, and nanotechnology. In return, its academic and business partners would get a window into the technology-rich region.
