FOIA request seeks info on new Speedos

Thanks to Mike Ravnitzky for passing along this link. An FOIA has been filed to learn more about Speedo manufacturers, new materials and designs. An independent testing program for the swimsuits appears to be in the works.
A Freedom of Information Act Request was filed at the NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) in Langley, Va., seeking all information related to the development of the Speedo Fastskin LZR Racer swimsuit and any "next generation" of swimsuits in the "design and testing pipeline phase" of development.

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) was enacted in 1966 - Title 5 U.S.C. § 552 of the U.S. Government Law and provides that any person has the right of access to Federal Agency records, except to the extent that such records are protected from release by a FOIA exemption.

The FOIA Request was completed according to NASA standards, procedures and rules, and was submitted in writing late November 2008.
