Ask the Administrator

On Thursday, July 29, 2010 NASA Administrator Charles Bolden attended a townhall meeting at Goddard Space Flight Center to talk with NASA interns, fellows and scholars about the importance of continued interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers.

Telling the crowd they are "the future of NASA," Bolden addressed questions about keeping manned space flights relevant, creating stronger relationships with commercial space vendors and keeping the fire ignited under space exploration.

"If you want to inspire a nation, tell them what you do," he told the interns.

Bolden hopes to use education programs such as NASA's One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) to help graduate and undergraduate students submit one application for up to 15 educational opportunities.
