Obama to Bolden - very brief and explicit: inspire young people and the country again
Advertisements [?]
"And my guidance from the president has been very brief, in fact, very explicit: incite inspiration in young people and the country again. I mean, it was a very simple message. He didn't give me any specific direction about how to do that, but his challenge to me was make it the way it used to be when he was a kid. The term he used was riding on his grandfather's shoulder as he saw the Apollo 11 astronauts, when his grandfather would hoist him up on his shoulder and watch the Apollo astronauts come in to shore after being picked up out in Hawaii. That's my charge, to inspire kids to want to get into space and science and all that stuff again. But we can do that."
