NASA administrator tours CU Boulder’s new aerospace building – The Denver Post

University officials were joined by NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine on Friday during the first tour of the new Aerospace Engineering Sciences Building at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Bridenstine, a former Oklahoma U.S. representative who was nominated to his position in 2018, visited the Autonomous Systems Lab, the UAS Fabrication Lab, the Payload Operations Center and the Bioastronautics High Bay in the $101 million building, which officially opens Monday.

He focused on the intersection of government, universities and industry, as well as the upcoming Artemis Project that plans a return to the moon in preparation for sending humans to Mars, during the tour.
