NASA shuffles center leadership
Posted: Tue, Jan 24, 2006, 6:33 AM ET (1133 GMT)
NASA announced Monday that the head of the Stennis Space Center had been reassigned to a post at the Kennedy Space Center, to be replaced by an official from the Langley Research Center. Bill Parsons, who had taken over Stennis just last September, will become deputy director of the Kennedy Space Center. Parsons had held several other senior positions within NASA, including space shuttle program manager. Parsons will be replaced at Stennis by Richard Gilbrech, the deputy director of Langley. NASA also confirmed the departure of Scott Hubbard as director of the Ames Research Center. Hubbard, who announced his plans to leave the agency to center employees last week, will take a position at the nearby SETI Institute, an astrobiology research center.
