NASA NASA announced Tuesday it's dividing its directorate responsible for human spaceflight into two organizations. The Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD) will be split into Exploration Systems Development, responsible for developing programs for Artemis and lunar exploration, and Space Operations, responsible for the ISS and commercial LEO development. Kathy Lueders, who had led HEOMD, will be in charge of Space Operations, while Jim Free, a former director of the Glenn Research Center, will be in charge of Exploration Systems Development. NASA leadership said that HEOMD had gotten too large, and that splitting it into two organizations would provide better oversight.
