NASA's infrastructure at all of its centers is "very aging," said the associate administrator of the space agency's Exploration Systems Development Mission Directorate, Catherine Koerner, at a U.S. congressional hearing.

"The infrastructure at Kennedy Space Center, as well as at all of our centers, is very old and we are aware of that within the agency," she told the House Space and Aeronautics subcommittee.

The committee holds a hearing on NASA's Artemis program, which is the space agency's global effort to place astronauts on the lunar surface and develop a permanent presence there.
Koerner stated that NASA is "investing heavily" in the capabilities needed to support the Artemis missions.
He also referred to the NASA 2040 initiative to review its infrastructure and mission support functions, including the Kennedy Space Center, and ensure that the space agency is ready for that year's activities.
