Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee Chairman Visits NASA Dryden

Rep. Ken Calvert, R-Calif., chairman of the House Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics, was briefed by X-43A engineer Laurie Grindle during a tour of NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center June 2. Rep. Calvert, accompanied by several staff members, was briefed by center director Kevin Petersen and members of his staff on Dryden's role as a flight research institution, and then reviewed some of the center's recent, current and upcoming flight research projects during his tour of the facility. During the afternoon, Rep. Calvert received similar briefings on a variety of projects at several aerospace development firms at the Civilian Flight Test Center in Mojave. Rep. Calvert's tour of NASA Dryden was the second in a series of visits to all 10 NASA field centers to better acquaint him with the roles and responsibilities of each center. A subcommittee of the House Science Committee, Rep. Calvert's committee has oversight of NASA and other federal agencies dealing with aeronautics and space issues. He represents California's 44th congressional district, which covers portions of Riverside and Orange County. - NASA Dryden photo by Tom Tschida
