NASA - return to flight

Arvel Chappell III with Charles Bolden

My east coast tour has brought me to NASA headquarters in Washington D.C. While here I pitched a "return to flight" PR campaign to NASA as they gear up for America's return to manned space exploration. My "return to flight" campaign is a series of 30 second spots aimed at the general public to generate excitement for NASA's new deep space rocket and Orion capsules which are designed to replace the Space Shuttle. I had meetings with the head of communications at NASA, David Weaver, and also with NASA TV. I also got a chance to meet former Astronaut and head of NASA Charles Bolden. It was great to have the opportunity to share my ideas with NASA. I'm grateful to be able to use my craft to further causes I believe in. Science education and promotion are ideas I strongly believe in and I'm excited to work with NASA in promoting these ideas. Stay tuned.
