1. Alabama's Role Marker
Inscription.  Alabama will continue to be key to America's future leadership in space. NASA and its commercial and academic partners in Alabama will manage the development of the Space Launch System, history's largest heavy-lift rocket, and human support missions to Mars. Marshall's specialized teams now manage science operations aboard the International Space Station and are developing new life support systems for deep space habitats. Marshall, where smart people are solving hard problems, manages many of NASA's smaller, deep space science missions. This crucial balance of science and engineering experience and a proven ability to integrate them will help America fulfill its space exploration goals in this new age of worldwide collaboration.
