SPACEHAB, Inc. (NASDAQ/NMS: SPAB), a leading provider of commercial space
services, has opened a corporate office in Huntsville, Alabama, at 600
Boulevard South. The office is headed by SPACEHAB’s Vice President and
General Manager of Huntsville Operations, Carolyn Griner.

SPACEHAB has maintained a company presence in Huntsville since 1997 and has
contributed to the Huntsville economy over the past 10 years through its
contracts with McDonnell Douglas (now The Boeing Company) for the
integration and operation of its fleet of Space Shuttle carriers. The
establishment of a Huntsville office signal’s SPACEHAB’s interest in
expanding its activities with NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) and
other aerospace companies and customers in the Huntsville area.

Carolyn Griner joined SPACEHAB in order to establish the Huntsville office.
Recently retired from the MSFC, Griner brings over 30 years of valuable
experience to the SPACEHAB team. Griner’s most recent and distinguished role
was as Deputy Director of MSFC, one of NASA’s nine Centers. With management
accountability of a $2.5 billion budget, Griner was responsible for
overseeing the vast activities of more than 2600 civil service and 4000
on-site contractor personnel. “I am excited about making the transition to
industry after a great career in the government sector,” said Griner. She
added “SPACEHAB is an innovative company with a great vision of space
commerce, and I am proud to be a part of the team.”

SPACEHAB, through its Microgravity Alliance comprised of several key
Huntsville-based aerospace and technology organizations, is now poised to
support the growing microgravity research and support needs of NASA and its
customers. This strategic partnership intends to respond to a request for
proposals from MSFC to provide the center with “Level III” microgravity
research support. The contract could cover up to 10 years and $800 million
in business.

Founded in 1984 and with more than $100 million in annual revenue, SPACEHAB
is the first company to commercially develop, own, and operate habitable
modules and carriers that provide laboratory facilities and logistics
resupply aboard NASA’s Space Shuttles. The company also supports astronaut
training at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston and provides commercial
satellite processing services for Boeing and Lockheed Martin expendable
launch vehicles near Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
