NEW NASA ADMINISTRATOR BEGINS FIELD CENTER TOUR

     NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe begins a tour of agency field 
centers this week with a trip to NASA's Langley Research Center, 
Hampton, Va., on Thursday, Jan. 10. Administrator O'Keefe continues 
his tour Jan. 17 with a visit to NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC) 
in Houston.

Administrator O'Keefe was sworn in Dec. 21 as the agency's 10th 
chief, following his confirmation by the U.S. Senate on Dec. 20. 
President George W. Bush nominated him for the position Nov. 14.

The Administrator will be available to briefly speak with media 
representatives during his tour of the Langley facility. For more 
information and to make arrangements for access to Langley contact 
Chris Rink at 757/864-6786.

During his trip to Houston, Administrator O'Keefe will be introduced 
by U.S. House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-Texas). The two met Dec. 4 
in the Representative's Washington office. For information regarding 
access to JSC during the Administrator's Jan. 17 visit, contact the 
newsroom at 281/483-5111.

The NASA Administrator plans to visit all the agency's field centers 
in the coming weeks. Additional information about Administrator 
O'Keefe is available on the Internet at:
