Rebecca is working as a contractor at NASA Goddard. She is currently the lead jitter analyst for the Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) instrument which is one of two instruments on the next LANDSAT satellite that will launch in late 2012.

Pedro is now the Executive Director of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC): The NSTC is a Cabinet-level Council and it is the principal means within the executive branch to coordinate science and technology policy across the diverse entities that make up the Federal research and development enterprise. Chaired by the President, the membership of the NSTC is made up of the Vice President, the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, Cabinet Secretaries and Agency Heads with significant science and technology responsibilities, and other White House officials. A primary objective of the NSTC is the establishment of clear national goals for Federal science and technology investments in a broad array of areas spanning virtually all the mission areas of the executive branch. The Council prepares research and development strategies that are coordinated across Federal agencies to form investment packages aimed at accomplishing multiple national goals. The work of the NSTC is organized under four primary committees: Science, Technology, Environment and Natural Resources and Homeland and National Security. Each of these committees oversees subcommittees and working groups focused on different aspects of science and technology and working to coordinate across the federal government. The Executive Director oversees the daily operations of the NSTC on behalf of the President of the United States.

Alexandra is enjoying school and her friends at the French school in Bethesda (Lycée Rochambeau,, where her French Language skills are exceeding our expectations. She also enjoys her gymnastics and tap dance classes and loves to draw pictures and create stories in her spare time.
