Bill Nelson at Senate confirmation hearing for NASA administrator (NASA/Bill Ingalls) The Senate unanimously confirmed Bill Nelson as the next administrator of NASA Thursday. The Senate confirmed Nelson's nomination to lead the agency by unanimous consent just one day after the Senate Commerce Committee favorably reported his nomination. Nelson had widespread support from the space industry for his nomination, and no senators expressed any opposition to his bid to run NASA during the confirmation process. "I am honored by the president's nomination and the Senate vote," Nelson said in a NASA statement after the Senate confirmed him. "I will try to merit that trust."
