President Biden nominates former astronaut Pamela Melroy for NASA deputy administrator

President Joe Biden will nominate former NASA astronaut and Air Force colonel Pamela Melroy to serve as NASA’s deputy administrator, according to a White House announcement released Friday (April 16).

Biden had announced his nomination of former Florida Senator Bill Nelson to lead the agency in March; both nominations must be approved by the Senate. During her time as an astronaut, Melroy was one of only two women to command the space shuttle.
