NOTE TO EDITORS:
NASA LANGLEY DIRECTORS TO OUTLINE CENTER
Roy D. Bridges Jr., Director of NASA’s Langley Research
Center, and Lesa B. Roe, Deputy Director and Chair of the
Reorganization Kick Start Team, will meet with news media at 4 p.m.
Wednesday, July 7, to discuss the Center's reorganization.
Changes at NASA Langley and agency-wide represent the next step
in applying the recommendations of the President's Commission on
Implementation of U.S. Space Exploration Policy and reflect NASA's
ongoing efforts to apply the findings and recommendations of the
Columbia Accident Investigation Board.
Langley Research Center played a critical role in the
Nation’s entry into the space era in the 1960s. Roe will
outline how the Center is reorganizing to position itself to play
an equally vital role in the new Space Exploration initiative.
Media wishing to participate should call Margarette Lynch at
757/864-6124 by noon Wednesday, July 7, to arrange for credentials
and entry onto the Center.
NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe recently announced a
transformation of NASA's organization structure; additional
