NASA has made several moves within their management structure official today, with Bill Parsons, Richard Gilbrech and G. Scott Hubbard all assuming new roles with the agency.
Parsons, a former Space Shuttle manager, has moved from being the director of the Stennis Space Center, back to the Kennedy Space Center (KSC), to become deputy center director at KSC.
Gilbrech will take over Parsons’ vacated position as Stennis director. He has served as deputy director of the agency’s Langley Research Center, Hampton, Va., and deputy director of NASA’s Engineering Safety Center.
‘My new position at the SETI Institute allows me to return to the research arena and pursue a lifelong interest in the search for life in the universe and its origins on Earth,’ he was quoted as saying to the AP.
