Back in July 2010, Charles Bolden, NASA Administrator, spoke to Al Jazeera about the mission of NASA as per the desires of the Obama administration.
He says he was given three things to accomplish.
- Inspire children to get into Math and Science.
- Expand international relationships.
- Reach out to the Muslim world and engage more with dominant Muslim nations. Help them feel good about their historic contributions to Math and Science.
NASA should not have an international outreach element to it. That was not the intention of the program. NASA was set up for our own national pride.
