NASA has named an interim director to lead the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville.
NASA officials say that Todd May has been named to the post after the retirement of former director Patrick Scheuermann.
May has served as the space center's deputy director since August and had managed the Space Launch System Program since 2011. Officials say May started his career with NASA in 1991 at the Materials and Processes lab at Marshall.
Officials say Scheuermann had worked at NASA for 27 years and began his career with the agency as a propulsion test engineer at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.
NASA officials say they're now looking for a permanent director for the space flight center.
