"For more than 35 years, Cooper's Island hosted a US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) radar tracking system, monitoring the progress of spacecraft lifting off from Cape Canaveral.

However on March 31, 1999, the site shut down after its role was replaced by a tracking -relay satellite.

Since NASA abandoned the site, it has been adapted into a nature reserve with large sections of the Island opened to the public in 2008." (source: The Royal Gazette, Friday Sept 30, 2011)

Recently, negotations between NASA and Bermuda Government were approved to have a more permanent location set up for the Wallops Island Facility to function. Work has been started to carry out extensive renovations to the former Administration Building. When everything is completed, Bermuda should be in an excellent position to showcase a first class facility which will also include a visitor's center.
