    Bridenstine confirms the push to the moon and also to Mars.

    A day after telling one audience that the U.S. was returning to the moon, new NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine reassured another that Mars remained a goal for the agency as well.

    Speaking May 9 at the Humans to Mars Summit here, Bridenstine said that NASA’s implementation of national space exploration policy signed by President Trump in December, calling for a human return to the moon, didn’t mean NASA was no longer pursuing eventual human missions to Mars.

    “If some of you are concerned that our focus in the coming years is the moon, don’t be,” he said. “The president’s vision has emphasized that our Exploration Campaign will establish American leadership in the human exploration of Mars. We are doing both the moon and Mars, in tandem, and the missions are supportive of each other.”

    "New NASA Chief Bridenstine Says Humans Contribute to Climate Change 'in a Major Way'"!

    https://www.space.com/40640-nasa-chi...te-change.html

    In a NASA town hall yesterday (May 17), NASA's new administrator, Jim Bridenstine, said that he knows Earth's climate is changing, and that humans contribute to it "in a major way," also supporting NASA's research into that important area. The statement is significant because Bridenstine has expressed doubt about human-caused climate change in the past, causing some to question his suitability to lead a fact-focused NASA.

    In 2013, as an Oklahoma congressman, Bridenstine claimed there was no current trend toward global warming. More recently, such as in his NASA administrator confirmation hearings last November, he has acknowledged that human activity contributes to climate change. But he had stopped short of saying that humans are the phenomenon's primary cause.
