"The Spaceport of the Future"

The Spaceport of the Future: NASA's Journey to Mars Begins Here
Thursday, April 16, 1-2 PM ET

Imagine a spaceport of the future, where a variety of space vehicles are preparing for launch or departing Earth on missions to expand humanity's reach into space. At NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the Ground Systems Development and Operations Program (GSDO) is propelling this vision forward, leading the center's transformation from a historically government-only launch complex, to a spaceport bustling with activity involving government and commercial vehicles alike.

NASA’s Digital Learning Network (DLN) and the Ground Systems Development and Operations team at Kennedy Space Center invite you to participate in an interactive webcast featuring, Engineer Jeremy Parsons.

Jeremy will webcast live from the Digital Learning Network studio at Kennedy Space Center in Florida and share information on America’s new spaceport and take questions from webcast viewers from around the country.

Submit questions for Jeremy before and during the event at dlinfochannel@gmail.com

Tweet your questions for Jeremy to answer live at #askDLN.
