Onward and Upward for NASA Administrator Bill Nelson

507326628.jpg

On Cool Science Radio, Bill Nelson, NASA’s 14th administrator comes on the show.

In March of 2021, President Biden nominated Nelson to lead the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. He was confirmed by unanimous consent by the United States Senate on April 29, 2021, and sworn in by Vice President Kamala Harris on May 3, 2021.

Nelson chaired the Space Subcommittee in the U.S. House of Representatives for six years and later served as the Ranking Member on the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, where he was recognized as the leading space program advocate in Congress.

We speak with Nelson about his top priorities for NASA.
