English/ Español: Rubio: Nelson Great Choice to Lead NASA

Mar 19, 2021 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) praised the nomination of former Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) to lead the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). 
“I cannot think of anyone better to lead NASA than Bill Nelson,” Rubio said. “There has been no greater champion, not just for Florida’s space industry, but for the space program as a whole than Bill. His nomination gives me confidence that the Biden Administration finally understands the importance of the Artemis program, and the necessity of winning the 21st century space race. I look forward to supporting Bill’s swift confirmation, and working with him in the years to come.”
In February, the Biden Administration refused to confirm the President’s support for the Artemis program. After pressure from Rubio, the Administration clarified that it “certainly” supported the program. 
Writing in Florida Today, Rubio explained that NASA’s success is critical to the future of our nation and pledged to work with his colleagues and the Administration to secure that 
“From my position on the Senate Committee on Appropriations, I will work with the Biden administration to deliver the resources necessary to ensure America’s return to the moon happens on schedule,” Rubio wrote in February. “President Biden should commit to continuing to prioritize deep space efforts like the Perseverance rover, as well as exploration missions like Artemis and, further down the line, manned flights to Mars. These are complementary with science missions such as those ongoing aboard the International Space Station, and his administration should not prioritize one at the expense of the other.”


Washington, DC – El senador estadounidense Marco Rubio (R-FL) elogió la nominación del ex senador Bill Nelson (D-FL) para dirigir la Administración Nacional de Aeronáutica y del Espacio (NASA). 
“No puedo pensar en nadie mejor para dirigir la NASA que Bill Nelson”, Rubio dijo. “No ha habido un defensor más grande, no solo para la industria espacial de la Florida, sino para el programa espacial que Bill. Su nominación me da la confianza que la Administración Biden finalmente comprende la importancia del programa Artemis y la necesidad de ganar la batalla en temas espaciales del siglo XXI. Espero poder respaldar la confirmación de Bill y trabajar con él en los próximos años”.
En febrero, la administración Biden se negó a confirmar el apoyo del presidente al programa Artemis. Tras la presión de Rubio, la Administración aclaró que “ciertamente” apoyó el programa.
