Thanks for the AMA!

When there are changes in the President or Congress, NASA's existing programs are sometimes dramatically changed or outright cancelled. It seems to be an institutional problem that NASA programs take longer than 4 years to develop but you are subject to the political cycle. Are you concerned that the "Road to Mars" that you've laid out could be at risk come 2017? If so, what can be done to ensure that the program is not taken off track?

Hey there awesome people!

From what I know about you guys, you're all "stoked about life." You wake up and go to work energized and excited to do what you're doing. Your enthusiasm for what you do is infectious. Most people just don't have that.

So my question is, how did you find your individual passions and what would you suggest for those of us who are still searching?

Hi Charlie,

Do you think election day should be a national holiday in order to encourage more people to vote? If so, how could this be accomplished, and who stands to benefit the most?
