After the Soviet launch of the world's first artificial satellite Sputnik 1 on October 4,the attention of the United States turned toward its own fledgling space efforts. The US Congressalarmed by the perceived threat to national security and technological leadership known as the " Sputnik crisis "urged immediate and swift action; President Dwight D.
Eisenhower and his advisers counseled more deliberate measures. Though space exploration is ostensibly non-partisan, the appointee usually is associated with the President's political party Democratic or Republicanand a new administrator is usually chosen when the Presidency changes parties.

Daniel Goldin was appointed by Republican George H. Bush and stayed through the entire administration of Democrat Bill Clinton. During his term he brought together the disparate projects in American space development research.
Webb —appointed by President John F. Kennedywas a Democrat who first publicly served under President Harry S. In order to implement the Apollo program to achieve Kennedy's Moon landing goal by the end of the s, Webb directed major management restructuring and facility expansion, establishing the Houston Manned Spacecraft Johnson Center and the Florida Launch Operations Kennedy Center.
Capitalizing on Kennedy's legacy, President Lyndon Johnson kept continuity with the Apollo program by keeping Webb on when he succeeded Kennedy in November Nixon replaced Webb with Republican Thomas O.
He was appointed for a second term as administrator from May through April by President Ronald Reagan to help the agency recover from the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster.
Truly served — and Frederick D. Wernher von Braun is at center. NASA has conducted many manned and unmanned spaceflight programs throughout its history.
Unmanned programs launched the first American artificial satellites into Earth orbit for scientific and communications purposes, and sent scientific probes to explore the planets of the solar system, starting with Venus and Marsand including " grand tours " of the outer planets.
Some missions include both manned and unmanned aspects, such as the Galileo probe, which was deployed by astronauts in Earth orbit before being sent unmanned to Jupiter. This was followed by a one-man space capsule program, and in turn by a two-man capsule program.(National Air and Space Museum) 25 May At Wright Field, now Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio, First Lieutenant James H.
