The likely next Administrator of NASA, Jim Bridenstine, appeared before a somewhat skeptical Senate committee to defend his nomination. Casey and Jason recap the hearing and assess Congressman Bridenstine’s chance of moving forward. We also analyze the first meeting of the National Space Council and Vice President Pence's declaration that Americans will return to the Moon. What does that mean for existing NASA programs and funding? What role will commercial companies play?
