I am Lori Garver, NASA's deputy administrator. Ask me anything about NASA's budget, future missions, or anything else!
Hello Reddit! My name is Lori Garver. I am the NASA Deputy Administrator, which means I'm the second in command of the US space agency. I'm here in Wallops Island, Virginia today to view our planned launch of a new rocket. I’m looking forward to trying to answer your questions about anything... about our mission today... about our mission we just announced to an asteroid, our astronauts on the International Space Station... or anything else about NASA that interests you! (I’ll start by saying: No, we don't have little green men hidden at Area 51 or anywhere else...that I know of; and yes, we did land on the Moon). To provide proof of who I am, here's a picture of me standing in front of my office at NASA Headquarters: https://twitter.com/Lori_Garver/status/324548705007050753 Ask away!
Update: Thanks for joining me today. It was a lot of fun. My 21 year old son has been after me to do this for about a year and it was fun making the NASA communications office nervous! Now that I know how this works, I can’t wait to be back!
