nelsonOrlando Sentinel – Nelson’s “iron will” leads to NASA frontrunner.

If retired Marine Corps Gen. and former astronaut Charlie Bolden emerges as the next NASA administrator he has one man to thank for it: Florida’s senior Democratic Senator Bill Nelson.

Nelson has tirelessly — some would say  obnoxiously — pushed for his old friend and the man who piloted the shuttle that Nelson flew on in 1986, where earned the nickname “Ballast” from fellow astronauts.

    Obnoxious or determined, I’m glad that Sen. Nelson held to his guns on this. So many others contort their dedication to our nation’s space exploration program to fit the political winds, but Bill Nelson bent the winds to his will. I admire that focus.
