NASA's Steve Cook (left), director of the Exploration Launch Projects office at Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama; Jeff Hanley, Constellation Program manager; and Skip Hatfield, Crew Exploration vehicles manager, talked with employees at NASA Stennis Space Center on Thursday, July 13. The three visited SSC to discuss the critical role the center will play in fulfilling America's Vision for Space Exploration. They also toured the site's rocket engine test complex, which will test engines for the new spacecraft being developed under the Constellation Program. The new spacecraft, the Ares I and Ares V, are centerpieces for NASA's Constellation Program, the plan of work that will return humans to the moon and blaze a trail to Mars and beyond, fulfilling America's Vision for Space Exploration.
