“For more than 50 years now…the Johnson Space Center has been the home of America’s spaceflight, and it will be your new home,” NASA Administrator Charles Bolden told the new candidates as he welcomed them.

“They not only have the right stuff…they represent the full tapestry of America,” Bolden said. “These next generation of explorers will be among those who plan and carry out the first human missions to an asteroid or on to Mars. Their journey begins now, and the nation will be right beside them reaching for the stars.
