NASA Facilities

St. Tammany Parish is perfectly positioned between two NASA facilities. The John C. Stennis Space Center, located roughly 15 miles outside of St. Tammany Parish, is its own 'federal city' on the Mississippi border, while the Michoud Assembly Facility is located roughly 20 miles from St. Tammany Parish in eastern New Orleans.  

John C. Stennis Space Center

For more than four decades, the John C. Stennis Space Center in south Mississippi has served as NASA's rocket propulsion testing ground. Today, the center provides propulsion test services for NASA and for the Department of Defense, as well as the private sector.

As the nation's largest rocket engine testing facility, Stennis tests all the main engines for the space shuttle and will test the engines for NASA's Constellation Program, the nation's plan to return humans to the moon with eventual travel to Mars.

Michoud Assembly Facility

Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans is a world-class manufacturing facility providing vital support to NASA exploration and discovery missions. Michoud's capabilities include the manufacture and assembly of critical hardware components for the space shuttle and exploration vehicles under development at Marshall and other NASA field centers. Michoud is a NASA-owned facility managed by Marshall Space Flight Center.

Michoud is unique in that it contains one of the largest production buildings in the nation, which includes a vertical assembly building for stacking external tank components for the space shuttle program. Michoud supports several major projects for NASA’s Constellation Program, which is developing America’s next generation of space transportation vehicles. Michoud’s highly skilled workforce will manufacture and assemble the upper stage of the Ares I rocket, the core stage and Earth departure stage of the Ares V cargo rocket, and the Orion crew exploration vehicle, and will conduct final systems integration and checkout of Ares I avionics systems.
