BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and several astronauts are expected in Bowling Green this week for several events.

Bolden will discuss the space program during a presentation at 4 p.m. CDT Friday at the Mass Media and Technology Hall Auditorium.

Former astronaut, Western graduate and Russellville native Terry Wilcutt will attend the program.
