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.
