Spock Has Certainly Left The Building

NASA's Charlie Bolden Gets Verklempt, Washington Post

"Over the course of 35 minutes of remarks -- which he admitted should have lasted for about five -- Bolden's voice broke and tears welled up at least five times. "I cry because my dad cried," he explained. "He taught me how to cry. He was my high school football coach. He expressed to me, and everyone else he coached, to have something you're passionate about." NASA became his passion, he said, even though he admitted, "I never dreamed of being an astronaut. I definitely didn't dream of being administrator."

Comment by Lori Garver during yesterday's employee briefing: "Feelings are back at NASA".
