• 119 KSC United Space Alliance workers lose jobs today

    United Space Alliance today bids goodbye to 119 Kennedy Space Center employees in its latest round of layoffs.
    NASA's lead shuttle contractor, a joint venture between The Boeing Co. and Lockheed Martin Corp., is continuing a multi-year downsizing as closeout of the shuttle program nears completion.

    Today's cuts will drop the Houston-based USA's Florida headcount to slightly more than 900 employees.

    Another 129 are slated to leave Jan. 4.
    All laid-off employees have been eligible for severance packages and help finding new jobs.
