Dear Sen. Nelson,

On behalf of the International Astronautical Federation (IAF), I would like to extend my most sincere congratulations on your recent confirmation as new NASA Administrator by unanimous consensus of the US Senate.
I would like to wish you the best of luck in your new post and I have no doubt that NASA will continue to excel under your leadership and propel the space sector development both nationally and internationally.
I look forward to further expand the very successful cooperation between the Federation and NASA and I look forward to welcome you at the next IAF Global Space Exploration Conference - GLEX 2021 in St. Petersburg, Russia from 14 - 18 June 2021, and at the 72nd IAC in Dubai, United Arab Emirates from 25 - 29 October 2021.
