It was revealed today that at least one of several (concurrent but coincidental) spy cases prosecuted by the DOJ involved Shuttle technology -
In Los Angeles, meanwhile, former Boeing engineer Dongfan "Greg" Chung, 72, was arrested on charges of working as an unregistered agent for the Chinese government who stole trade secrets from the defense contractor. The stolen data largely focused on aerospace programs, including the Space Shuttle, prosecutors said.
