Yesterday, we honored Maj. Gen. Michael Collins with a tree dedication in our Astronaut Grove at @NASA_Johnson. Mike was a pioneer who contributed immensely to human spaceflight & inspired so many when he flew on the Gemini 10 and Apollo 11 missions.

Today, we honored astronaut John Young by naming the hangar at Ellington Field in @HoustonTX that holds @NASA’s T-38 astronaut training jets. John was considered a paragon of the astronaut corps, a pioneer who walked on the Moon during Apollo 16 & commanded the 1st space shuttle.

He continued to serve the agency as a champion of technical excellence and spaceflight safety. NASA astronauts regularly train for spaceflight in the T-38 jets housed in the Ellington Field hangar, so naming the facility for the accomplished pilot was considered fitting.

When space is opened to the commercial sector, new innovations can drive down the cost of space exploration. Look to Mt. Everest to understand how low-Earth orbit will play an expansive and critical role for achieving humanity’s ambitions in outer space. go.nasa.gov/3j0u6Tk

I love the idea of exploring the unknown. There's so much out there that we still have to learn. As the chair of the National Space Council, I'm eager to get our young people interested in STEM and space exploration. Watch “Get Curious” at invidious.fdn.fr/Wlxq4S-4CCY
