In its fiirst 50 years, NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center grew from an isolated testing site to the
nation’s largest rocket engine test facility and a unique federal city home to more than 30 agencies
and organizations. It built a reputation of excellence for testing powerful space engines, including
those that carried humans to the moon and powered 135 shuttle missions over a 30-year span.
Having celebrated those 50 years of growth and accomplishment in 2011, Stennis Space Center is
committed to building on its strong foundation.

The center is partnering with companies to test engines and components that will enable commercial space flights. It also is testing NASA’s J-2X powerpack component and engine, which will carry humans deeper into space than ever before.

At the same time, Stennis continues its lead work in Earth science, particularly as it relates to Gulf
of Mexico issues. With incorporation of the former Mississippi Army Ammunition Plant facilities,
Stennis also stands poised for years of expansion as companies and organizations realize the bene
fits of locating their operations onsite. In 2011, Stennis was ranked as one of the very best places to
work in the federal government, a tribute to the dedication of every member of the Stennis family
