President Joe Biden has chosen a former senator from Florida who flew on the space shuttle just days before the Challenger launch accident to lead NASA.
Biden on Friday announced his intent to nominate Bill Nelson as the space agency’s administrator.
Nelson, 78, grew up near Cape Canaveral and was serving as a Democratic congressman when he launched aboard space shuttle Columbia in January 1986. His commander was Charles Bolden Jr., who later served as NASA administrator under President Barack Obama — at Nelson’s urging.
So this is payback for his support to Obama.
Nelson is 78 years old.
Can we please not have and more senile boomers in our Federal government.
The closest Nelson should be to a NASA facility is in The Villages drinking Metamucil and pretending it’s Tang.
Why are we putting NASA in the liver spotted hands of a career bureaucrat swamp creature who was elected the first time more than a decade before I was born?
Elon Musk wants to build condos on Mars. He should be in charge of NASA. Or at least someone of his age and vision.
Nope, Biden is going to kill NASA too, just to spite the legacy of Trump.
