yet made a determination to grant the requested license and may deny 
the requested license even if no objections are submitted within the 
comment period.

received by NASA within fifteen (15) days of the date of this published 
notice will also be treated as objections to the grant of the 
contemplated exclusive license.

available to the public for inspection and, to the extent permitted by 
law, will not be released under the Freedom of Information Act, 5
