Historic Initiative:

NASA Wallops Flight Facility

NASA Wallops Flight Facility is of key strategic importance for the Lower Shore of Maryland. Fully half of NASA’s 1800+ on-base employees live in Worcester, Wicomico or Somerset County. GSC has been deeply involved with Wallops for many years, and is a current member of the NASA Wallops Partners community-based alliance. GSC, in coordination with the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce, was able to bring Maryland Governor Larry Hogan to NASA for his first visit as Governor, and to bring Maryland State Senate President Bill Ferguson for his first visit. GSC has helped strengthen ties between NASA and various community partners, including Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore and its annual JA Inspire event. Collaboration with NASA, and the allied government agencies that have operations on the base, is of critical importance. GSC also includes Rocket Labs, a private entity that is launching into space from NASA Wallops, as a strategic partner.
