The Coalition for Space Exploration is pleased that President Obama has named retired Gen. Charles Bolden as NASA administrator and Lori Garver as deputy administrator. Bolden is a strong and experienced leader who will balance the priorities of the agency.
America's space program is at a critical crossroad. NASA needs a clearly defined plan and unwavering support from the president and Congress to achieve our nation's space exploration objectives. We look forward to working with the new NASA administrator and his leadership team as we address the rapidly approaching human spaceflight gap following retirement of the Space Shuttle, the next generation Constellation program and full utilization of the International Space Station.
