Retired SSC chief dies

Roy Estess, long associated with NASA's Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, died Friday. He was 71. Estess, of Carriere, had an allergic reaction to an insect string while at his camp in Tylertown. His career at NASA spanned 37 years, with 25 of that at Stennis Space Center. He was a founding director of the board of Infinity Science Center, a science learning center being built along Interstate 10, just south of Stennis Space Center. (Source: Sun Herald, 06/26/10)
