Submission + - NASA 'Spy Center', Operation 'Stellar Wind' (

kodiaktau writes: The NSA is working on building the largest cyber-security project in the Utah desert. The highly classified center is said to be near Bluffdale, the location of the largest sect of polygamists in Utah. The center will be called the Utah Data Center and will be used to decipher, analyze and store data from the world's communications grid.

Wired mag was able to get a conceptual site plan from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers showing the size and scope of the facilities. Additional information about the kinds of machines needed to support this operation is speculation, but it is assumed that based on Pentagon goals, the facility will become a library of current data that may not be able to be decrypted at this time and will store it until it can be further broken down and analyzed.
