Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. -- NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden, accompanied by Center Director Bob Cabana, sees firsthand how NASA's Kennedy Space Center is transiting to a spaceport of the future as Kennedy's Mike Parrish explains the upcoming uses for the crawler-transporter that has carried space vehicles to the launch pad since the Apollo Program.

NASA is working with U.S. industry partners to develop commercial spaceflight capabilities to low Earth orbit as the agency also is developing the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle MPCV and the Space Launch System SLS, a crew capsule and heavy-lift rocket to provide an entirely new capability for human exploration. Designed to be flexible for launching spacecraft for crew and cargo missions, SLS and Orion MPCV will expand human presence beyond low Earth orbit and enable new missions of exploration across the solar system.
