Flyby Appearance by Charlie Bolden at COTS Event

NASA Hails Success of Commercial Space Program Private Space Station Resupply Underway, Plans Readied for Astronauts

"NASA Administrator Charles Bolden Wednesday hailed the success of the agency's public-private partnership with American companies to resupply the International Space Station and announced the next phase of contracting with U.S. companies to transport astronauts is set to begin next week."

Keith's note: The only "news" from this morning's webcast is that NASA will be issuing an RFP next week for commercial crew services. Despite a media advisory highlighting Bolden's participation in this morning's event, Bolden read some prepared remarks, posed for photos with company reps who got NASA awards, and then disappeared. There was no opportunity for media to ask him questions - all in keeping with PAO's "hide Charlie" strategy.
