Randy Atkins: NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, Jr. says, through such things as education programs, his agency is actively forging more relationships with other countries.

Charles Bolden: In addition to the nations that most of you usually hear about when you think about the international space station, we now have expanded our efforts to reach out to what I call non-traditional partners.

Randy Atkins: Bolden calls NASA’s work “inherently international” and wants to help countries who might not be able to do space experiments on their own.

Charles Bolden: I am incredibly excited about President Obama’s giving us the opportunity to expand the level of our international cooperation, particularly the part where he’s asking us to reach out to Muslim nations.
