Description

The University of Montana was granted $3 million in federal earmarks from NASA between 2004 and 2005 to develop space research and create space-related jobs. UM used the money to create a for profit group called Inland Northwest Space Alliance, and a campus group called the Northern Rockies Center for Space Privatization. The majority of the money went to paying six figure salaries to university officials, former Sen. Conrad Burn's staffers, as well as their spouses and lovers.
