NASA Statement on Nomination for Agency Administrator
The following is a statement from acting NASA Administrator Robert Lightfoot on Friday’s announcement of the intended nomination by President Donald Trump of U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine to serve as the 13th NASA administrator:“I am pleased to have Rep. Bridenstine nominated to lead our team. Of course, the nomination must go through the Senate confirmation process, but I look forward to ensuring a smooth transition and sharing the great work the NASA team is doing.“I look forward to working with a new leadership team, and the administration, on NASA’s ongoing mission of exploration and discovery. Our history is amazing, and our future is even brighter, as we continue to build on this nation’s incredible global leadership in human exploration, science, aeronautics and technology.”Bridenstine, a pilot in the U.S. Navy Reserve and former executive director of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum and Planetarium, was elected to the U.S. Congress in 2012 to represent Oklahoma’s First Congressional District. He currently serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the Science, Space and Technology Committee.For information about NASA’s missions, discoveries and activities, visit:

The American Space Museum (formerly the U. S. Space Walk of Fame Museum) has opened a SPACE WORKERS HALL OF HONOR to identify anyone who has ever worked in any of our space programs. This is an online (web-based) recognition dedicating an entire page to each and every worker – past and present – to highlight and acknowledge their service. If you or a family member had any role at all at any time in our space programs, please log on to www.spacehonors.org and create a page spotlighting them. This project will help preserve our space history and honor those who made it possible!

“Now that I’m retired, what can I do to help the space program?”
Check out the Photo ID Project
Frank Bryan, who began this as a personal quest to contribute, says: “There are lots of photos of the old rockets and launch pads in the KSC archives showing people who were part of the team, but the official photos provide no names. Twenty years from now no one will know who was there. With our experience, we can add that information for all who come after us.”
With that as a starting point, the NALFL Photo ID Project (PIP) was born. Join in and add your own personal knowledge by “filling in the blanks” on the historic photos for each program conducted at KSC and leave a fitting legacy for our future.
