  • NASA chief announces Alabama facility as moon spacecraft headquarters

"It was Marshall scientists and engineers who designed, built, tested, and helped launch the giant Saturn V rocket that carried astronauts on the Apollo missions to the moon".

"Now, I will say this was not a decision that was made lightly", Bridenstine added, explaining Marshall's history building Apollo lunar spacecraft a half century ago.

Future missions are expected to carry USA astronauts, including the first female astronaut to land on the moon.

The head of NASA is set to announce plans on Friday to name the U.S. space agency's Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama as headquarters for its human lunar lander program, signaling progress in its drive to put astronauts back on the moon by 2024, three people familiar with the plan said. "We focus on a "One NASA" integrated approach that uses the technical capabilities of many centers", he said.

"Marshall Space Flight Center does tremendous work for our nation's space program, but the knowledge base and skill set for this task unquestionably resides at JSC where the Apollo lunar lander program was successfully managed", Babin said in a statement.

The space shuttle's propulsion system also was developed at Marshall, and the center has the lead role in managing the Space Launch System development effort. Im pleased NASA has chosen Marshall to spearhead a key component of Americas return to the Moon and usher in the Artemis era. "Thanks to Administrator Bridenstine for traveling here to share the great news in person".

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine talks to reporters in front of the core stage of the Space Launch System, which will power the Artemis 1 lunar mission, as he visits the NASA Michaud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019. In June, the Republican president urged NASA to focus instead on "much bigger" initiatives like going to Mars, undercutting his previous stated support for the lunar initiative. "We look forward to working with our industry partners and our NASA partners from around the country". They believe Houston should be the place where the next moon landing is developed and launched given that "Houston was one of the first words ever uttered on The Moon", and the Johnson Space Center developed the last moon-landed rocket.

The Orion rocket will be apart of the Artemis 1 moon mission and the first test flight has been scheduled for 2020.

The Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville will lead the development of a vehicle that will land astronauts on the body for the first time since 1972.

More than a third of the 360 jobs - 140 - will be at Marshall.

NASA recently issued a draft solicitation and requested comments from American companies interested in providing an integrated human landing system a precursor to the final solicitation targeted for release in the coming months. Secondly, we will establish missions by 2028.
