Biden nominates former Sen. Bill Nelson as NASA Head

The Biden administration has tapped Former Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson to lead NASA. Nelson represented Florida’s Space Coast during his nearly two decades on Capitol Hill, where he was one of the space agency’s most vocal supporters. Nelson, as NASA administrator, will be tasked with leading the agency as it races to return American astronauts to the moon under the Trump-era Artemis program. The White House, last month, said it supports the Artemis Program, which aims to land the first woman and the next man on the moon by 2024.
