The White House announced Friday that US President Joe Biden was tapping former Florida Democratic MLA Bill Nelson, who once boarded the space shuttle. And helped formulate space law as head of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
The nomination seems to verify Biden's interest in maintaining United States of America leadership in space as NASA prepares to return to the Moon under the Artemis program, whereas pivoting towards business partnerships for missions in low-Earth orbit.
Biden has conjointly signaled that global climate change analysis is a top priority for the agency.
If confirmed, Nelson would succeed Jim Bridenstein, a former administrator elected by former President Donald Trump, who resigned on January 20.
When he was a Republican member of the House of Commons, Brydenstein's candidacy was met with deep skepticism as a result of his controversial political positions, including opposing scientific consensus on global climate change.
But he was honored as a competent NASA administrator, and his experience in Congress proved invaluable in securing support for the agency's goals, and he reversed his position on the weather.
A White House statement highlighted Nelson's four decades in public office, first in the Florida State Legislature and Congress, then as treasurer.
The 78-year-old moderate Democrat was elected to the Senate 3 times , but lost his last reelection bid and his term ended in 2019.
Due to his long political career, he was presiding over a member of the space committees in both the House and the Senate.
The White House said in a statement that "NASA has been assigned to the current program of both its public and private missions, including the 2010 law," which has had an impact on every aspect of space and science.
