The following is a statement from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden on Monday's announcement by Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski of her plan to retire from Congress in 2016:
"Senator Mikulski has been a tireless champion for NASA, and has helped pave the way for future exploration and our journey to Mars.
"Her steadfast support for the Goddard Space Flight Center and its extraordinary science, including the Hubble Space Telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope and dozens of missions that are expanding our journey of discovery, will give current and future generations of Americans a better understanding of our world and our universe. Her candor, passion and vision will be greatly missed.
"She has inspired future generations to study science, technology, education and mathematics and helped ensure America's continued leadership in space. We salute her service to the American people."
