NASA Internal Memo: President’s Nomination for NASA Administrator
President’s Nomination for NASA Administrator
As you may have heard, President Trump has announced his intent to nominate U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine as the 13th NASA administrator. I am pleased to see the positive movement toward naming our next administrator, and look forward to sharing with him the incredible work you have been doing.
The nomination must go through a Senate confirmation process first, as will the deputy administrator nomination when that person is named by the president. We will keep you in the loop as things progress and the nominations move forward.
In the meantime, let’s stay focused on the job at hand. I am proud of everyone across the agency and thank you for moving our missions forward. It remains a thrilling and humbling experience to lead this team and watch what you all can accomplish.
I hope everyone has a safe Labor Day weekend, and please remember our friends impacted by Harvey as they begin the long road of recovery.
