Jim Bridenstine took his official oath of office as the 13th NASA administrator at a ceremony that took place Monday at the space agency’s Washington headquarters.

Vice President Mike Pence swore in Bridenstine four days after the Senate confirmed him,  NASA said Tuesday.

Bridenstine told agency leaders during a video teleconference that the fiscal 2018 spending bill provides funds to help the agency pursue human spaceflight, aeronautics research and partnership efforts.

The former Oklahoma congressman served on the House Armed Services and Science, Space and Technology Committees.

He, a U.S. Navy Reserve pilot, previously worked as executive director of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum and Planetarium.
