Friday - 5/15/2009, 2:03pm EDT
Former astronaut and retired Marine Corps General Charles F. Bolden, Jr., has risen to the top of President Obama's list of candidates to head the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
Bolden is scheduled to meet with President Obama on Monday according to sources who spoke with NBC News.
The nomination could come the same day.
As an astronaut, Bolden logged over 680 hours in space and is a veteran of four space flights. He was also involved in the deployment of the Hubble Space Telescope in 1990.
If confirmed by the Senate, he would be the first African American to hold the post.
