Bolden Meets Obama; No Word on Administrator Offer


The Associated Press reports that although Barack Obama and Charles Bolden met earlier today, there’s no word on whether the president offered the former astronaut NASA’s top job:

White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said Obama met with Charles Bolden, a former shuttle commander and retired Marine major general. Shapiro says they spoke about ideas for making NASA stronger, their commitment to space exploration and Bolden’s ideas for the agency’s future.

The administration isn’t expected to announce a new NASA chief immediately.
