STENNIS SPACE CENTER, MS (WLOX) – On Friday, Administrator Charles Bolden made his tenth and final visit to Stennis Space Center as NASA’s leader before he leaves the position on Jan. 20.

“Nothing goes to space without going through Mississippi,” Bolden said during his 30-minute visit with the media.

Engines built to propel men into space are tested at Stennis. Over the next year, several tests are scheduled with the ultimate goal of developing an engine strong enough to make it to Mars.
