Yet Another NASA Town Hall

NASA Invites Media to Discuss Future of NASA

"NASA Administrator Bill Nelson and other senior agency leaders will host an employee town hall for all civil servant and contractor employees at noon EDT, Tuesday, Sept. 21, to provide updates about the agency's human spaceflight programs, projects, and activities to the workforce. The town hall will air live on NASA Television, the NASA app, the agency's website, and multiple agency social media platforms. Media are invited to a follow-on teleconference at 2:30 p.m. with audio streaming live online."

Keith's note: You can expect non-answers to the whole imaginary SLS launch schedule and also what the latest faith-based plan Senator Administrator Bill Nelson has to snag billions of infrastructure money for NASA to keep Artemis afloat - a plan which has so far failed.

Keith's note: NASA PAO just sent me this statement on the NASA Kennedy and NASA HQ security events which were connected after all. FWIW sources inside NASA say that the false alarm happened when a mistake was made in a training exercise in advance of a formal training event next week at NASA HQ as we reported earlier.

"A false alarm indicating an active shooter was set off at 11:05 a.m. EDT today (Sept. 10) at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. As a result of that false alarm, a concerned citizen, thinking they were notifying the appropriate office, reported an active shooter to the security forces at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Kennedy security forces responded locally, issuing an alert for its headquarters building at about 11:50 a.m. After confirming no credible threat at either location, NASA issued an all clear to its workforce. The security forces at both locations acted quickly to assess and address the situation in an effective manner. An investigation is ongoing to determine how the alarm was triggered."

NASA Michoud Hurricane Ida Status Report Aug. 31, 2021 4:30 p.m. (with images)

"Assessments continue at NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility following Hurricane Ida. Damage to the roofs of several buildings have been confirmed and includes loose panels, panels removed during the storm, debris and water damage. Michoud remains on limited generator power for essential areas. Due to no power in the factory, assessments inside have been limited and by flashlight only. No damage has been observed to date to flight hardware with inspections inside the factory to continue for the next several days. Crews will also continue assessments and inspections across the facility grounds and buildings. Debris remains across campus and on roadways and is being cleared by on-site teams. The facility remains closed and access limited to essential personnel."
