LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Purdue University President Mitch Daniels will play a role in the future of the space program.  He's joined a panel that will make recommendations about it.

The Committee on Human Spaceflight will review the space program's long-term goals and direction and suggest ways to sustain them.

Daniels says Purdue has a long history with the space program and that he's honored to serve on the panel.  Its alumni include astronauts "Gus" Grissom, Roger Chaffee, Neil Armstrong, and Gene Cernan.  Armstrong was the first man to set foot on the moon, and Cernan was the last.
