Solyndra for sale: Inside company's vacant production plant

For sale: manufacturing and office facility with 411,618 square feet, state of the art electrical, air, and power distribution systems -- and a troubled past. As part of its bankruptcy proceedings, Solyndra is reportedly very close to landing a buyer for its California plant. Fox News toured it to see what the new owners will get for their multi-million dollar investment.
