Bill Nelson Career

In 1972, Nelson was elected to the Florida House of Representatives as the member from the 47th district, representing much of Brevard County and portions of Orange County and Seminole County. He won reelection in 1974 and 1976.

Nelson was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1978 in the open 9th congressional district after the five-term Republican incumbent, Louis Frey Jr., chose to run for governor of Florida rather than for reelection.

In 1980, Nelson was reelected to that district, which encompassed all of Brevard and part of Orange County. He was redistricted to the 11th congressional district, encompassing all of Brevard and parts of Orange, Indian River, and Osceola counties; he won reelection in 1982, 1984, 1986, and 1988. He remained a member of the U.S. House of Representatives until 1991.

Nelson chaired the House Space Subcommittee for six years as a key member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. His district included Cape Canaveral and its space facility. In 1988, Bill Nelson criticized President Reagan's policy to export American satellites for launch on China's Long March rockets. Nelson called this an "inconsistent administration policy." Nelson stated that Reagan "wanted to build up commercial space ventures, and on the other hand, he is cutting off the commercial space ventures at the knees with these export licenses."

In 1990, Nelson ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic nomination for governor of Florida. His primary rival was former U.S. Senator Lawton Chiles. During the campaign, the younger Nelson tried to highlight Chiles' age and use of Prozac to treat his depression, but this proved to be an unpopular strategy, and Nelson lost by a wide margin, getting 30.5% of the vote to Chiles' 69.5%. Chiles went on to win the general election.

In 1994, Nelson announced his intention to seek the office of Treasurer, Insurance Commissioner and Fire Marshal of Florida. He won the election with 52% of the vote over State Rep. Tim Ireland's 48%. In 1998, he won re-election to the office, again defeating Ireland.

In 2000, Nelson announced that he would be running for the United States Senate seat held by retiring Republican Connie Mack III. Florida's resign-to-run law compelled Nelson to submit his resignation as Treasurer, Insurance Commissioner and Fire Marshal early in 2000 when he began to campaign for the U.S. Senate seat. He chose January 3, 2001, as the effective date of his resignation, as that was the date on which new Senators would be sworn in.

How NASA's new mission to drill for water on the moon will help astronauts BREATHE in space, create fuel for spaceships and give America a permanent lunar base - catapulting us into a new era of space exploration

NASA 's Polar Resources Ice-Mining Experiment-1 is strapped the the craft's exterior, which will soon dig into the surface, collect regolith and analyze the lunar dust with a suit of powerful instruments. The mission will aid astronauts who will soon investigate the moon, allowing them to use water for hydration, fuel and even breathing - ultimately establishing a human presence.

'Welcome to the moon': How Odysseus 'aced the landing of a lifetime' as it touched down on the lunar surface following a nail-biting 73-minute descent - marking the first time the US has reached the moon in more than 50 years

The first time the United States has landed safely on the Moon since the Apollo era 50 years ago, a privately built spacecraft successfully landed safely on the moon, marking the first time the US has reached the lunar surface since the Apollo era 50 years ago. Last night, Odysseus, a $118 million uncrewed lander built by Intuitive machines, made a soft landing near the moon's south pole at 6:24 p.m. ET. Odysseus, or Oddie, slowed down from 4,000 kph (6,500 kph) to make a smooth landing in an area pockmarked with craters during its 73-minute descent. However, when the craft was forced to switch to an experimental navigation device mid-landing, it almost ended in disaster. I know this was a nail biter, but we're on the surface and we're broadcasting.' Steve Altemus, the CEO of Intuitive Machines, said, "Welcome to the moon."

The $118 million unmanned Odysseus, or Odie, is soaring through space, but this one, designed by Houston-based Intuitive Machines, is unlike previous voyages. The six-legged robot lander is supposed to touch down at 6:24 p.m. ET at a crater called Malapert A near the moon's south pole, having slowed down from 4,000 mph. On NASA TV, the landing attempt is being streamed live on NASA. About 15 seconds after the record was reached, flight controllers are supposed to announce landing.
