Gilbrech Addresses Space Foundation Correspondent’s Group
On June 4, 2008, the Space Foundation hosted a Space Foundation Correspondent's Group (SFCG) event. NASA Associate Administrator for Exploration Systems Dr. Richard Gilbrech addressed reporters from publications including national, trade, and wire services. Gilbrech is responsible for leading the development of the new spacecraft that will return U.S. astronauts to the moon and travel to Mars and other destinations in the solar system. During his remarks, Gilbrech spoke about the status of the Constellation program and its various components including the J2-X engine, the launch abort system, and the Orion capsule.
This SFCG event is part of a regular series of gatherings for Washington, D.C.-based space, defense, science and technology, business, and international journalists to engage in dialogue with leaders from across the space industry.
