SPACEPORT NEWS SUMMARIES AND SPECIAL TOPICS
By Malcolm Glenn
These files capture our nation’s space history and Kennedy Space Center’s in stories that are summaries taken from the published accounts of the Spaceport News. We thank Malcolm Glenn who authored these summaries, with his slant and possible grammatical mistakes. Mr. Glenn is a graduate of the University of Virginia (BS Systems Engineering) and the University of Missouri-St.Louis (MBA). His career spans several aerospace contractors and NASA where he currently works for S&MA at KSC. Here is his summary resume’.
I graduated from the University of Virginia in May 1976 with a BS in Systems Engineering. I started working at McDonnell Douglas in St. Louis in June 1976, and worked there for a few years, as a Cost Estimator on the Tomahawk cruise missile program, and getting an MBA from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I hired in to the Space Center on July 13, 1981, with Rockwell International as a systems engineer in the Launch Accessories/ECS/PVD engineering group, under John Hagood and Larry Connell. I transitioned to Lockheed Space Operations Company in February 1984 and stayed with Lockheed, in engineering, until I hired on with NASA in the S&MA Directorate on August 15, 1988. I have been with S&MA ever since. I supported Shuttle Processing from an S&MA point of view, as Bob Lang requested I closely follow what was going on in the Engineering world of shuttle processing. I am also the KSC Lifting Devices and Equipment Manager, and have been doing that for some 32 years now.
These Summaries are not a script for good grammar and I do not proofread them exhaustively, so there are mistakes and such in that regard. And as I have said before, these Summaries are only my slant on things.
