Major General Charles Bolden, one of the pioneers of the Space Exploration World, was the first to travel in the space shuttle in the 1980s to complete a technological level.
His feelings to see the world from Shuttle's vast distance were amazing, especially Africa and the continent of his ancestors.
"For the first time in the universe I cried, I cried a lot." On November 13th, Bolton announced a large audience during a public lecture at the Cape Town University (UCT).
The mission of the bold American mission scientist in the United States reached South Africa. During his visit, he attended high school and university students, faculties, aerospace professionals, and general public. To promote space exploration and science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.
Before becoming a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) spacecraft, the American Bolivian American Marine Corps Major General who graduated from the United States Naval Academy, a marine operator and test pilot. He was the first African American to serve as NASA's administrator from 2009 to 2017.
Through the scientific Advani program, famous American scientists and engineers use their expertise and networks to continue to recognize and recognize the opportunities for international cooperation.
During the NASA's time, Bolton observed a safe transition from a 30-year mission, exploring a new era, exploring the use of the international space station, space and aeronautics technology.

Boltron space shuttle helped Kolajjian in January 1986, and the Space Shuttle Discovery Hubble Space Telescope was deployed in the 1990s. In 1992, he proposed the Space Shuttle Atlantis ship and in the discovery of the US-Russian Space Shuttle Discovery Project in 1994.
Moved to tears
On the subject "The sky is not the limit"When the African continent on African continent reached South Carolina, tears of joy from the African continent were tears.
"We trained in technically for two years, and we trained disasters, we exposed all the things that might be wrong in our equipment, so we were well prepared … the emotions we never spoke … The growth in South Carolina was not growing in racial discrimination, But that can not be said.
"I knew my forefathers were somewhere in Africa, and I taught and remembered all the nations that my ancestors might come from," he said.
"There are no borders, from Mediterranean, under the cab of the good hope, I found this incredible terrain."
Finally he looked out through the window: "Man, that's quite unbelievable."
"I saw this big thing that looks like a big island, and I was shocked, and I did not have any boundaries, from the Mediterranean to Good Hope, I saw this incredible continent.
"Surprisingly, there were no borders or borders, and I did not know South Africa or Morocco.
On an hour after dark, Bolden remembered, and suddenly he saw "all these lights".
"Most of them were stars … But you look at poverty and wealth while looking at the ground, the surrounding areas are black, dark, and usually plenty of poverty.
"When you're down, looking down, when you make these technical preparations, I'm thinking of a lot of things you never thought, I'm a man from that planet and we're no longer alive, like now, no limits, no bounds. My view of the planet has changed. "
Mars is not an option
He said that he was always an environmental activist, "when you look back at this thin blue color [the atmosphere which has the oxygen to sustain life] … it becomes more urgent. "
"We always hear about the point and the earth is always weaker, or it will return, that's billions of years, and it's going to change and evolve … We have a weak point, so we're more concerned with this planet, because I want to go to Mars, I do not want to.
"If we believe we can go to Mars, the earth will not be sustainable now, just think about it," Bolden warned.
He explained the details of NASA and his career. "Is not we one single?", "When the first galaxies came after the big bang?", "The universe?"
Another question is: "Elen Musk is Mars by 2024?"
Bolden does not think so.
"Mars is really harsh and we are still far away from a reliable human launch system from commercial enterprises, but it will happen, but not overnight," he prophesied.
"Mars is really harsh and we are still away from a remote human launch system of commercial establishments."
"There are billions of billions of galaxies and galaxies," he explains, "because the evidence in the universe is more planetary than the stars.
"When I was still in your age, I told a young potential astronomer:" We have only studied nine planets. That was it. "
Bollden is a space law in the fastest growing areas. He also addressed the Global Exploration Roadmap, a long-distance international exploration strategy signed by several countries.
Bolden, Chief Executive Officer of the Bolton Consulting Group, is another goal of South Africa 's visit: "Remind people the importance of collaborating with America in Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Technology.
"My goal is to encourage the leaders in industry, business, national leaders and leaders to find ways to interact with the US on commercial basis in science and technology. NASA and NASA now use their public-private partnership. "
Chance of South Africa
Bolden refers to the possibility of South Africa in this area, and modern NASA will not either operate or operate a space shuttle or space transport vehicle, instead "buy" from private sector companies.
"South Africa will do so, and the vehicle is less expensive than driving and driving, and when operating and operating the vehicle, they are paying for repairs and activities," he said. The $ 2 billion was spent annually about whether or not to keep it in shuttle.
In the space region, Africa has a similarity to the United States.
"You are already involved in the space community and you can work with the African industry to allow you a lot of things to do, and it takes a while to understand that."
When asked about her favorite place, she gave her the name Bolden Hidden NumbersA Biographical Drama of 2016 is a story of black martyrs who work in NASA.
"For black women, this is not my favorite picture because it's not about black women, it's about humanity, our desire, which is still anxious and demanding: women, black people, who are not in the positions of dignitaries, and that's what I deserve."
