Interview with David Hitt and Kathryn Crowe

David Hitt is a communications strategist for NASA’s Space Launch System, helping to share the story of America’s next-generation heavy-lift rocket for human and scientific exploration beyond Earth’s orbit. Hitt began working at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in 2002 as a writer for the NASAexplores education website, and later served as the senior writer for the student and educator sections of the nasa.gov website.

A former newspaper editor, Hitt is a native of Huntsville, AL, and holds a bachelors degree in journalism from the University of Mississippi. He is co-author of two books, “Homesteading Space: The Skylab Story,” written with astronauts Owen Garriott and Joe Kerwin, and “Bold They Rise: The Space Shuttle Early Years”. He is a former chair of the National Space Society’s policy formulation subcommittee and serves as a volunteer at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center museum in Huntsville.

Kathryn Crowe is a Systems Engineer on the SLS launch vehicle. She is currently working on such items as evolvability trade studies, near earth mission timelines, and operational requirements for EM2 and beyond. Prior to coming to work at NASA, she spent 4 years in the USAF at the Defense Language Institute, and then proceeded to get her B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Alabama at Huntsville. Since coming to work as first an intern in 2009, and then a co-operative education student in 2010, Kathryn has spent time as a MSFC Propulsion Test Engineer and a Propulsion Systems Engineer for the SLS RS25 Core Stage Engine before beginning her current work on the SLS vehicle.
