Message from the Administrator

Greetings! It is my great pleasure to join the NASA team today. In the last few days, I have heard numerous times, “welcome to the NASA family.” It truly feels like a family, and I am humbled to be a part of it.

I want to thank the President and Vice President for the confidence they have placed in me and the entire NASA family as we continue NASA’s critical missions.

I also want to thank Robert Lightfoot for his strong leadership as the Acting Administrator during a time of transition and for his decades of service to NASA and our nation. His legacy is one of commitment to our mission and leadership in all capacities.

NASA has a history of great leaders from the early days of Hugh Dryden and James Webb to our most recent leaders, Sean O’Keefe, Michael Griffin, and Charlie Bolden. I will do my best to serve our storied agency to the utmost of my abilities as we reach for new heights and reveal the unknown for the benefit of humankind.

NASA represents the best of our country.  We lead, we discover, we pioneer, and we inspire. I look forward to our journey together.

Ad astra,

Jim Bridenstine
