NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION Renaming NASA Buildings
NASA will name its headquarters in Washington, D.C. after Mary Jackson, the agency’s first Black female engineer. Ms. Jackson, a mathematician and aerospace engineer, was pivotal in the hiring and promotion of women at NASA, the agency said. Her career and legacy were chronicled in the 2016 film “Hidden Figures.”
The Senate has also passed a bill to rename the NASA John H. Glenn Research Center at Plum Brook Station in Ohio as the "NASA John H. Glenn Research Center at the Neil A. Armstrong Test Facility.”
Lastly, an effort is being undertaken, led by Virgin Orbit’s Vice President Will Pomerantz, to rename NASA’s Stennis Space Center. Stennis is named after John C. Stennis, a segregationist U.S. Senator from Mississippi where the Center is located.
