The Senate has confirmed Christopher Scolese, director of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, to lead the National Reconnaissance Office, Politico reported Friday.

The move coincides with U.S. Air Force Gen. John Raymond’s confirmation to lead U.S. Space Command. Scolese will serve as director of both Goddard Space Flight Center and NRO, as Raymond will oversee both USAF and national space commands.

Formerly, Scolese served as NASA’s administrator on an acting basis for seven months in 2009. He also managed and directed various NASA projects in the area of Earth science. President Trump announced Scolese’s nomination in February.
