Default Mercury to Lose Lake X

I recently heard (fromt an excellent source) that Mercury will be losing its lease at Lake X next year. I'm sure they will find a perfectly good replacement test site, but it was always kind of cool to read about the mysterious site.

I read the same thing. I wonder if the new place will be a secret stomping ground also.

I'll bet the deal was Carl owned the lake and leased it to Merc. When he died estate sold the property.

caferacer is correct.
This news of Lake X was mentioned 2 years ago on here...thats why they scrambled to get in bed with Fountain $.
They will be a strong team together.
