Lightfoot To Head MSFC

Robert Lightfoot named Marshall Space Flight Center director, Huntsville Times

"Robert Lightfoot has been named the director of Marshall Space Flight Center, a NASA official told a group touring Kennedy Space Center, in Florida, this morning. As they were departing the International Space Station Center at Kennedy, the bus applauded the announcement. "We have some exciting news," announced senior NASA manager Pat Fuller. Lighfoot, a 20-year NASA veteran, has been the acting director since former Marshall Director Dave King stepped down in April. He will be the 11th permanent director of the center, which was created on July 1, 1960."
