RELEASE M13-065
NASA Associate Administrator Robert Lightfoot to Visit Marshall Space Flight Center, Meet with Media

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - NASA Associate Administrator Robert Lightfoot will visit the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., on Wednesday, May 22, to discuss the future of human space exploration and the critical role of the Space Launch System and the Marshall Center in those efforts.

Media representatives are invited to join Lightfoot from 9-9:30 a.m. CDT in Building 4705, where master machinists are using one of the world's largest multi-axis milling machines to craft the nearly 20-foot-diameter aluminum rings that will join the Orion spacecraft to the rockets that will carry it to Earth orbit and beyond.

Lightfoot was director of the Marshall Center from August 2009 through September 2012, when he became NASA's associate administrator, the agency's highest-ranking civil service position.

News media interested in attending should contact Jennifer Stanfield in the Marshall Center's Public & Employee Communications Office at 256-544-0034 no later than 5 p.m. CDT Tuesday, May 21.

On May 22, media must report to the Redstone Arsenal Joint Visitor Control Center at Gate 9, Interstate 565 interchange at Rideout Road/Research Park Boulevard by 8:15 a.m. Vehicles are subject to a security search at the gate. News media will need two photo identifications and proof of car insurance.
