Charles Bolden to Be Named NASA Administrator Monday? (Updated) May 15, 2009

Posted by Nick Azer in African-American History, NASA.

NASA Watch and MSNBC are reporting that Charles Bolden will likely be nominated as NASA’s administrator after meeting with President Obama on Monday, ending a long process full of twists and turns.

The primary choice of Sen. Bill Nelson, Bolden is an astronaut veteran and would be the first African-American adminstrator of NASA. In the past I talked about the significance of that in regards to specifics of NASA’s history, in the context of Gen. Lester Lyles having then been a candidate.

Keep an eye here for further updates once his nomination becomes official…

(Editor’s Note: Originally understood meeting with Obama and potential appointment would be Friday the 15th; meeting is instead this coming Monday the 18th. Post updated with correction.)
