The Biden administration on Saturday appointed Vice President Kamala Harris to chair the National Space Council, according to senior administration officials.
Harris confirmed her new position on Twitter, writing: "As I've said before: In America, when we shoot for the moon, we plant our flag on it. I am honored to lead our National Space Council."
According to an official, Kamala intends to put her own personal stamp on the council. Her priorities are focused on policies including the advancement of STEM education, cybersecurity, supporting the long-term sustainability of commercial space activity, and diversity in the workforce, CNN reported.
The council was first created by the executive order by President George H.W. Bush. Following the Bush administration, the council was essentially demobilized until it was reestablished by another executive order from President Donald Trump in 2017, per Politico.
The Biden administration plans to operate the work under that same executive order from 2017 but intends to review it to see if changes are necessary, according to CNN.

With the amount of space between her ears, she is well qualified.
Great...just as info is leaking out from DOD about encounters with possible alien craft, we put the same person in charge of space that we put in charge of the Mexican border.
She’ll out as little effort into that phony-baloney job as she did in her phony-baloney border crisis job.
What a farce.
When we shoot for the moon, we plant our flag on it????
How can she say this??? Isn’t it colonialist and imperialistic, to take pride in our country planting our flag in any foreign locale, whether on earth or on another celestial entity????
Great, now she will be letting aliens from other planets come in too.
I can’t find a facepalm meme adequate to express my disgust.
Willie Brown planted his flag on her moon.
The great pretender. Totally out of her scheme of knowledge. Two puppets!!
President Imposter and Vice-President Imposter Syndrome.
IF she put the effort she did to get her political career started into these roles she might actually be able to accomplish something.
But she can’t be concerned with the border crisis and the first public task Biden gave her? She has no history to suggest she is even remotely qualified or interested in the space program, absolutely none at all. Disgraceful.

Space is pretty far from the US-Mexico border, so it makes sense.
“Willie Brown planted his flag on her moon.”
among the mass variety of flag which others had planted there from years past.
Idiot has many roles.......all of which she is qualified to do or run or oversee.......
