Lopez-Alegria New President of Commercial Spaceflight Federation

The Commercial Spaceflight Federation (CSF) announced today that Michael Lopez-Alegria is its new President effective March 19.

NASA had issued a press release hours earlier announcing that he had left the agency.  A NASA astronaut, he holds the record for the longest spaceflight mission for a U.S. astronaut, the most spacewalks (10), and the longest time accumulated in spacewalks (64 hours 40 minutes).   He flew on three space shuttle missions and one International Space Station (ISS) mission.  The ISS mission lasted 215 days, the longest to date.

CSF Chairman Eric Anderson said CSF was “incredibly excited” to have a “leader and a true pioneer” heading the organization, which is dedicated to promoting the development of commercial human spaceflight.
