Former Astronaut Could Be Next NASA Administrator
18 May 2009 3:10 pm
Former astronaut Charles Bolden is expected to be named the next administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration as early as today, according to press reports over the weekend. A veteran of four space shuttle missions in the 1980s and '90s, Bolden retired as a major general in the Marine Corps in 2004. He has since worked as a lobbyist for the aerospace community. If nominated and confirmed, Bolden will be the first African American to lead NASA. He is scheduled to meet with President Barack Obama for an interview today. Stay tuned.
