This is an undated photo that shows a rocket test stand at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight in Huntsville, Ala., that workers demolished on Friday, Nov. 30, 2012. Once used to test F-1 engines for the Saturn V moon rockets, the space agency said it tore down the structure to save maintenance costs and free up land for new use. A new report claims NASA may know where it has been in the past, but is less sure about where it's going in the future.
