Bolden on Education

Most-precious resource for NASA: Next generation, Opinion, Charles Bolden, Orlando Sentinel

"Today, we must continue to cultivate new astronauts, scientists, robot designers and computer engineers. As President Obama noted in a recent speech to the National Academy of Sciences, the average age in NASA's Mission Control during the Apollo program was just 26. The average age in the control room for space shuttle Endeavour's July 31 landing was considerably older, and we need to ensure that we are getting an adequate influx of new engineers and scientists to fill our needs. This is a concern shared by many of the nation's engineering and science-related organizations. We need new scientists and engineers if we are to remain competitive and retain our role as the technological leaders in the world."
