CEO Bill Nye Joins NASA Advisory Council on Education and Public Outreach

Bill is traveling today, so he asked me to pass this along.

He just received word that he was accepted into the NASA Advisory Council (NAC) which provides counsel directly to Charles Bolden, the NASA Administrator. He'll sit on the Education subcommittee at a time of great turmoil for NASA's Education and Public Outreach efforts. The 2014 budget proposes a very large cut to this division, as well as the consolidation of all activities to the NSF, the Smithsonian, and the Department of Education.

We're excited at the Society to have our CEO be involved in a very direct way with NASA policy. We'll do our best to continue to represent you and keep NASA's public outreach strong.

Just received official word: I've been appointed to the NASA Advisory Council, committee on education. What do want NASA to show you?
