Cristina Chaplain, Government Accountability Office

NASA's launch and re-entry of its Orion space capsule proved the vehicle might safely carry people into deep space. Someday. But when? That's the question NASA faces as it tries to meet ambitious deadlines with limited funds. A big challenge is developing the vehicle, the rocket necessary to launch it past the moon and the ground station support so they're all ready at the same time. The Government Accountability Office has been on top of this. Christina Chaplain, the director of acquisition and sourcing management issues at GAO joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin to examine the agency's findings.

NASA begins an official investigation into what caused the supply rocket explosion in Virginia yesterday. It's an expensive setback for the agency's strategy to rely more on contractors -- and contractor-led innovation -- to meet its mission. Lou Kerestesy is founder and CEO of GovInnovators. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said agencies are missing hidden opportunities to find innovation inside their own organizations.

Charles Bolden, National Aeronautics and Space Administration

NASA has a lot going on these days, and not just the investigation into Tuesday evening's explosion of a privately-operated rocket at the Wallops Island Flight Facility in Virginia. NASA has received high marks for employee satisfaction, and it's also moving ahead with plans to end U.S. reliance on Russia. NASA chose contractors Boeing and Space-X to transport astronauts to the International Space Station by 2017. The Tuesday crash involved a rocket made and operated by Orbital Sciences, which is not involved in astronaut transport. In an interview with Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp, Administrator Charles Bolden spoke about new rockets and why they're special.
