March 2012 - Marion Almy, President, has been reappointed to serve on the Florida Historical Commission (FHC). The FHC was established by the Legislature (Chapter 267.0612, Florida Statutes) to enhance public participation and involvement in the preservation and protection of the State's historic and archaeological sites and properties.
The End of the Space Shuttle Program
In response to President George W. Bush’s announcement in January 2004 that the Space Shuttle Program (SSP) would end in 2010, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) completed a nation-wide historical survey and evaluation of NASA-owned facilities and properties (real property assets) at all its Centers and component facilities. The buildings and structures which supported the SSP were inventoried and assessed as per the criteria of eligibility for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in the context of this program. In 2005, ACI was contracted by NASA to complete this survey at numerous NASA facilities across the U.S., including Kennedy Space Center (Florida), Johnson Space Center (Texas), Marshall Space Flight Center (Alabama), Glenn Research Center (Ohio), Dryden Flight Research Center (California), White Sands Test Facility (New Mexico) and Santa Susana Field Laboratory (California).
As a result of the surveys, ACI has been contracted by Kennedy Space Center and Johnson Space Center to document many of the NRHP eligible buildings. This has included the Vehicle Assembly Building, the Launch Control Center, Launch Complex 39A and the Shuttle Landing Facility at Kennedy Space Center, and the Mission Control Center, the Shuttle Vehicle Mockup Facility, and the Jake Garn Mission Simulation and Test Facility at Johnson Space Center.
