Jacobs was part of the team that supported NASA on the Artemis 1 mission's 1.4-million-mile trip around the moon and back. The Orion spacecraft traveled farther than any space vehicle capable of safely transporting humans.
"With Orion's successful journey and safe return to earth, this historic mission has paved the way for a new era of scientific discovery and human exploration of deep space," Jacobs EVP Steve Arnette said.
