propulsion systems. New technologies are being explored to make space more
accessible by reducing the cost of launching space vehicles while improving
flight safety. Marshall is also NASA’s lead center for microgravity research –
conducting unique scientific studies in the near-weightlessness of space to
improve life on Earth.
