Former astronaut Scott Horowitz, recently named associate administrator for NASA's Exploration Systems Mission Directorate, was briefed on NASA Dryden Flight Research Center's capabilities to support the agency's space exploration goals during a visit to the local NASA center Nov. 18. Horowitz toured Dryden's simulation and flight loads labs and met with Dryden's Crew Exploration Vehicle Launch Abort test team during his visit. Dryden engineer Larry Hudson (left) outlined thermal tests performed on a carbon silicon-carbide (C/SiC) structural article to Horowitz (right) as Dryden center director Kevin Petersen looks on. Horowitz later addressed employees during an afternoon town hall session about the goals of NASA's vision for Space Exploration, and what roles the local NASA center might have in bringing the vision to reality.
