Bolden Speaks in Charleston

NASA chief to be keynote speaker, Post and Courier

"NASA Administrator Charles F. Bolden Jr., a Columbia native, will be the featured speaker at this year's Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Business and Professional Breakfast, making him the annual event's second consecutive keynote speaker from the aerospace sector. The breakfast is a major fundraising event for the YWCA of Greater Charleston, and is co-sponsored by the city."

Remarks for NASA Adminstrator Bolden Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Business and Professional Breakfast

"It's a new world all around. What I preside over at NASA would have been science fiction when I was growing up. The International Space Station, an orbiting outpost the size of a football field, circling overhead 250 miles above Earth, with human occupants 24/7 for more than ten years now would have been unthinkable in my college days. In fact, the international partnership that built and operates the ISS would itself have been unthinkable even very recently. That we have a regular presence at Saturn and Mars and will soon have a satellite orbiting Mercury was something we could only conceptualize when I studied at the U.S. Naval Academy."
