Charlie Bolden not afraid to cry

NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden isn’t afraid let feelings and emotions reign at NASA. Speaking at a NASA Advisory Council meeting on Thursday at Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California, Bolden choked up after viewing a short clip of the Ares 1-X test launch. “You don’t launch a new rocket every day,” he said, his voice breaking. “That was very special to me.” It’s not the first time that Bolden’s emotions have gotten the best of him. NASA’s Captain Kirk is clearly different from former administrator Mike Griffin, who once referred to himself as Spock.
