New Hydrogen Fuel Cell Ford Vehicle Visits KSC

Representatives of Ford Motor Company are bringing a new hydrogen fuel cell Focus to the Kennedy Space Center Sept. 23. The vehicle, which is an example of NASA-inspired fuel cell technology, will be on display from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

NASA Fluid Propellants Manager H. T. Everett will speak with the media at 11 a.m. about the many benefits of the technology and the evolution of its use in commercial markets for electrical power generation. Buildings, transportation vehicles and mobile electronics are beginning to utilize this clean and efficient technology.

Media planning to attend should go directly to the KSC Visitor Complex. The vehicle will be located at the main entrance parking lot in front of the ticket booths.
