HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The director of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida made a visit to the Rocket City on Thursday.

Bob Cabana gave a presentation at the Space and Rocket Center. He talked about his history as an astronaut and the future of NASA, including the Space Launch System, or SLS.

Cabana said NASA is becoming more efficient by doing more with less.

"Our number one priority is supporting NASA programs," Cabana said. "Our number one priority, the reason the Kennedy Space Center exists, the reason we have Launch Complex 39, is to support SLS and get us to Mars, to explore beyond Planet Earth."

The Orion crew vehicle of the SLS will perform its first test flight in December. Cabana said NASA is very excited about this project.
