John Batchelor and I welcomed back Rand Simberg to discuss the nomination of retired Senator Bill Nelson to the position of the new NASA Administrator. Rand talked about Sen. Nelson being considered the father of SLS, what might happen when the new SpaceX big rockets start flying which will likely impact SLS, plus Rand talked about risk taking and Sen. Nelson being risk averse. Rand did say that costs were not the concern of Nelson, NASA or the Biden Administration plus so far there has been no indication of big changes from the Trump space policy. Other topics and subjects were discussed in this one segment Hotel Mars program.
