A peek into some of the contractor support needed for NASA’s big day

With the planned launch of its new heavy rocket and a payload headed to orbit the moon, it’s a red letter day for NASA. Lots of contractors are working-on and behind-the-scenes and will be doing so for the duration of the mission. On Friday, Federal Drive host Tom Temin caught up with Nate Apodaca of Leidos, a company that has several information technology support contracts to help NASA keep the lunar enterprise going. The conversation took place before Nate, a Leidos vice president and division manager, departed for Florida.
