We are the managers at the helm of NASA's programs to allow us to send humans into deep space. Ask us anything!
UPDATE: It's time for us to sign off for now. Thanks for all the great questions. Keep following along for updates as we get ready for a 7:05am ET launch of Orion on December 4 from Kennedy Space Center. We will monitor and try to answer a few more questions later.

We are the NASA managers at the helm of three new programs that will allow us to send humans into deep space and ultimately to Mars: the Orion spacecraft, the Space Launch System rocket, and the launch pads and ground systems that support them. NASA will take the next step toward deep space with Orion's first test flight, launching Thursday, and work is already starting on the steps that will follow. Ready to take your questions are:
- Mark Geyer, program manager for NASA's new spacecraft, Orion
- Todd May, program manager for NASA's new rocket, Space Launch System
- Mike Bolger, program manager for NASA's Ground System Development and Operations program, which will provide the launch facilities for Orion and SLS
