Jim Brydensteen - Congressman from Oklahoma, a US Navy veteran and a former pilot will become the 13th NASA administrator in 7 months after Trump decided on his candidacy
On April 19, the US Senate confirmed the election of President Donald Trump to head the NASA space agency. The objection was expressed by the Democrats, who considered that he lacked experience.
It's about Jim Briddenstine. This is a congressman from Oklahoma, a veteran of the US Navy and a former pilot who will become the 13th NASA administrator in 7 months after Trump decided on his candidacy. Briddenstine, 42, has expressed interest in bringing people back to the moon and closer NASA connections with commercial space companies. He was also a skeptic about climate change on Earth. In 2016, he was an active supporter of Trump's presidency.
The previous NASA administrator was former astronaut Charles Bolden. In January 2017, he resigned.
