Robert Estes, MSPM ’20, a project manager with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Langley Research Center, shared a press release and video detailing the successful testing of the NASA Orion spacecraft’s launch abort system (LAS). According to Mr. Estes, the successful outcome of the LAS test means NASA is “one step closer to returning astronauts to the moon.”

Mr. Estes said he wanted to share the news to let his fellow MSPM students see what kind of “exciting adventure they have in store as future project and program managers.”
