Jim Bridenstine was nominated to be the Administrator of NASA on September 1, 2017; he was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on April 19, 2018. Bridenstine was on the Committee on Science, Space and Technology during his time in Congress. He was the first elected official to be appointed NASA Administrator. As administrator, Bridenstine led NASA in advancing America’s aeronautics, science and space exploration objectives.

Under Bridenstine’s leadership at NASA, America returned to once again launching American astronauts on American rockets from American soil, something not done since the end of the Space Shuttle program in 2011. He did this while sustaining the commercial resupply of the International Space Station (ISS) and expanding ISS utilization.

All Car Windows Down, All Eyes on the Alert

 by Ron Page
 Those of you who have read my columns of years past know that I like to reflect on my rural upbringing. Some of you may have questioned the relevance of my childhood experiences to Rotary or “Service Above Self”. My answer would be that it is our childhood experiences that largely shape who we are today, and my Rotarian friends are the finest people I know. I’m a curious guy, and I wonder a great deal about just what made them that way. Although I can’t claim to measure up to the very high standards of the Club, I do enjoy sharing life experiences that had much to do with making me the way I am.

A major influence for me was, and is, travel – which I have missed very much during this pandemic. 
Some of my earliest memories are of making the automobile trip from our northern Illinois farm to the southeastern corner of Missouri where my parents and my aunts and uncles lived before they all migrated to the flat corn country 80 miles west of Chicago. There were flat tires, rivers running over the roads, and other such events to punctuate the trip, but, finally, the foothills of the Ozarks and the smell of burning hickory, a fragrance unknown back home. Missouri was different: there were hills, forests, giant springs. People “talked different”: “pop” was “sody”, “Well I’ll be” was “Well I’ll swan”. But it was all good – not better or worse than home – just different and interesting.

The years right after World War II were profitable for corn farmers and my dad deserved his good fortune, as he had worked the night shift at a defense plant while running a good-sized corn farm all during the war. I can’t remember when he slept or how he found time to tend to all the livestock. 
Then there was no more rationing, manufacturing was converted from military back to consumer goods, and we suddenly had a new Dodge grain truck, new farm machinery, and a new 1947 Dodge sedan to replace our 1937 Plymouth.  READ MORE
