Editor's note: Shortly after Charles Bolden meets with President Obama, Acting Administrator Chris Scolese will be headed to today's hearing on NASA's FY 2010 budget request. And not too long after the hearing we will hopefully have astronaut Scott Parazynski summitting Mt. Everest carrying moon rocks from Apollo 11. These events among others makes for a pretty interesting day.
Editor's Update: The meeting between Obama and Bolden is over. We'll keep you posted when an announcement is forthcoming.
"President Barack Obama has met with a leading candidate to head NASA.
White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said Tuesday that Obama met with Charles Bolden, a former shuttle commander and retired Marine major general.
The administration isn't expected to announce a new NASA chief immediately."
